If there’s any one truism in engineering it is that there’s no one perfect solution, there’s only the best solution for the application at hand. When it comes to feedback devices, OEMs have a wide range of options. Should you use a resolver or an encoder? If you need an encoder, should you opt for an optical or magnetic device? Incremental or absolute? What is the most appropriate mounting configuration? Do you need ingress protection (IP), and if so, to what level? How about resolution? The sheer variety of choices can be overwhelming.
In this webinar, we’ll take a closer look at the key environmental, electrical, and mechanical considerations that can help you narrow down the right feedback options for your system.
Watch this webinar to learn:
– The basic types of encoder engines – optical or magnetic – and when to use them
– Consider Absolutes – how absolute encoders can save money, increase uptime, and prevent damage
– Mounting options for every application
– The ins and outs of ingress protection and IP ratings
