Incremental Rotary Encoders

HEIDENHAIN incremental rotary encoders have as measuring standard a graduated disk with a periodic grating of lines and gaps. A second track carries a reference mark. The reference mark defines an absolute reference position on the circular graduation and is permanently assigned to exactly one measuring step. On incremental rotary encoders the position value is determined by counting the measuring steps.

HEIDENHAIN incremental rotary encoders allow resolutions of up to 500,000 measuring steps per revolution in position measurement. In systems with electrical drives and digital speed control, up to 8 million measuring steps per revolution are possible.
