For higher resolution positioning and speed control, FAULHABER provides a wide range of encoders for combination with the complete portfolio of FAULHABER DC, brushless, and stepper motors.
2 and 3 Channel incremental magnetic and optical encoders with standard quadrature resolution from 16 to up to 1024 cpr or single turn absolute encoders with a resolution up to 10 000 steps are available.
FAULHABER Motors are offered in combination with sensors and encoders. An encoder is a sensor for angle measurement that is usually used for speed or position control.
The incremental shaft encoders are designed with optical or magnetical principle or as single chip version. At the encoder outputs, two 90° phase-shifted rectangular signals are available with up to 10 000 impulses and an index impulse per motor revolution (3 channel version).
