The standard feedback in servo systems and in industrial automation today is the optical encoder. These sensors are accurate, cost-effective and they are available in many different mechanical versions.  

Optical sensors are available with all commonly used interfaces:

  • A, B, Z (AquadB)
  • SSI
  • BISS
  • EnDat
  • Hiperface
  • CAN
  • Profibus
  • EtherCAT (in preparation)
