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 4096 steps are available.
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 1024 impulses and an index impulse per motor revolution (3 channel version). more>>
The absolute encoder in combination with the FAULHABER DC-Motors is ideal for commutation, speed and position control. Absolute means, that each shaft position is assigned to a unique angular value within one revolution. It can also be used to create a sinusoidal commutation signal. more>>
