Selecting encoders for robot design

When it comes to robots, the right subcomponents play a big role in enabling elegant, functional designs that meet performance, cost and safety requirements. This guide explains the different ways a critical subcomponent—the rotary encoder—is evolving to meet rising demands, and how to choose the best one. Topics covered include:

  • Method of encoder operation 
  • Environment 
  • Functional safety 
  • Maintenance posture 
  • Installation space 
  • Assembly 
  • Flexibility 
  • Tolerances 
  • Quality assurance 
  • Cost 
  • Recommended products and solutions
