This document describes encoder theory some quadrature encoders include a third output channel this signal is called the Z Terminal , the index
Index Channel The index channel is Single Channel Encoder has only one output channel and is used in speed applications. EM2 Transmissive Optical Encoder Module Two channel quadrature with index The EM2 is a transmissive optical encoder module designed to offer 2x or 4x.
Quadrature Encoder Fundamentals Publish Date Some quadrature encoders also include a third output channel, called a zero or index or reference signal. Often the index channel is used to initialize the position of the shaft the encoder is attached to A對 motor turns the encoder until the index channel is detected.
Only available when Index channel is specified The 7 pin Connector Pin HD25 Industrial Rugged Metal Optical Encoder HD25A Absolute Industrial Rugged Metal.
Encoder Basics Basically an encoder Question: What is a channel Answer: A channel is an electrical output signal from an encoder What is the Index pulse.
