The contactless incremental encoder is used to measure the direction and speed of rotation of a shaft. This technology is used in many machines in
which a linear displacement is achieved by means of a rotary motor. This sensor is often used as an alternative for two inductive limit switches or expensive optical encoders. The contactless absolute encoder is used to measure the absolute angle of a rotating shaft that turns through an angle of less than 360°. Typical applications include steering systems, throttle levers and automatic doors. This rotary encoder is therefore highly suitable for continuous feedback of the shaft position to the controller.
