Displacement, position, angle - in industrial automation where positions have to be precisely determined, you simply cannot beat an encoder.The same applies when determining speed and acceleration. Due to their working principle, the photoelectric scanning of optical code patterns, in linear displacement measurement these sensors have a resolution of micrometers and in angle measurement they have a resolution of a few thousandths of a degree. With less demanding tasks, of course, they cope easily.
