3) What are pulses per revolution for encoders?
Pulses per revolution (or PPR) is a parameter associated with encoders. Basically, it is a measure of the number of pulses per full revolution or turn of the encoder, with a full revolution being 360 degrees. In essence, it is a measure of an encoder’s resolution. But what counts as a pulse may have different definitions depending on the manufacturer.
