The OstBridge team specializes in providing a diverse range of comprehensive solutions and components tailored for various applications in the field of Angle Encoders.
Angle encoders share similarities with rotary encoders as they both monitor and provide feedback on rotational movement. However, angle encoders stand out by offering superior accuracy compared to rotary encoders.
Angle Encoder Module is the key part of an Angle Encoder. The Module consists of two separate components, the encoder glas disc and the readhead module. Features of encoder module：-no friction or mechanical contact-high repeatability-Flexible installation and compact siz-cost-effective-assembly process impact-simple mechanical construction
An angle encoder is a specialized position sensor designed to measure the angular position of a rotating shaft. Typically, angle encoders employ optical technology, utilizing a disk-shaped rotor with an optical grating that interacts with an opto-electric sensor on the stator. The optical system relies on precise rotation of the rotor in relation to the stator, necessitating the inclusion of bearings in most angle encoders to ensure concentric alignment between the two components. By maintaining this tight constraint, angle encoders facilitate accurate and reliable measurement of angular positions. Angle encoders serve the purpose of measuring rotation, similar to their rotary counterparts. However, they are particularly suitable for applications that demand utmost precision in measurement.
For Angle Encoders we usually talk about optical angle encoder. Optical angle encoders use a patterned disk (grating) on the rotating part and a stationary sensor. A light source shines on the grating, and the sensor detects changes in light intensity as the grating rotates. These changes are converted into electrical signals that indicate the angular position of the rotating shaft.
Here's a table summarizing the differences between angle encoders and rotary encoders:
