Technical TidBit: Advantages of Absolute Encoders And Pure Serial Interface

Provided by Bob Setbacken, HEIDENHAIN Product Manager, Leine & Linde Absolute encoders transmit position information digitally. All signal compensation and interpolation techniques required to obtain the position measurement are done locally in the encoder position measurement sensor. This drastically reduces the potential for noise insertion as the sensor is a carefully designed ASIC surrounded by […]
