Encoder output choices for best performance and signal integrity

Encoder output choices for best performance and signal integrity
Motion control applications typically require one or more position encoders. Several types are available and the engineer must first decide whether an incremental, absolute, or commutation encoder is most appropriate. After this decision has been made, other selection criteria include resolution and mechanical aspects, such as the mounting pattern and motor shaft size.  By Jason Kelly, Motion Control Design and Applications Engineer, CUI
