Incremental encoders

Incremental encoders

Versatile, compact and flexible – Incremental encoders

Incremental encoders generate information about position, angle, and rotation counts. The resolution is defined in the number of lines or pulses per rotation, which the encoder transmits to the control unit for each rotation. The current position can be determined by the control unit by counting these pulses. A reference run can be necessary when switching on the machine.

SICK Absolute encoders

Absolute encoders

Flexible, compact and reliable - absolute encoders made to measure!

Absolute encoders generate information about position, angle, and rotation counts in type-specific angle steps. For this, a unique code pattern is assigned to each angle increment. The number of code patterns available per revolution determines the resolution. Each code pattern forms a unique reference, and is therefore an absolute position. There is therefore no need for a reference run after switching on. A singleturn encoder measures the absolute position within a revolution. A multiturn encoder not only provides the position within a revolution but also the number of revolutions.

SICK Measuring wheel encoders

Measuring wheel encoders

Tactile measurement of linear movements directly on the measurement surface

Measuring wheel systems use a wheel to record linear movements, which they then convert to speed or position values. These systems do not require a reference point on the surface to be measured, making them well-suited to measuring a wide range of surfaces. The integrated spring ensures that the wheel exerts a consistent pressure on the surface, thereby guaranteeing slip-free measurement.
