Linear Encoders

Absolute Rotary Encoders offer extended interface options.

OPTOCODE encoders are available with combined interface that enables simultaneous communication of both absolute and incremental rotary position data. Designed to provide point-to-point communications between encoders and PLCs, interface reports absolute rotary position data to PLC using synchronous serial interface (SSI) standard, operating over RS-422/485 communication link. Simultaneously,...
