Basic knowledge of Angle Encoders:
What is an Angle Encoder?

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.

How Angle Encoder works?

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.

What are the Advantages of Angle Encoders?
  • High precision: Accurate and precise measurement of angular positions.
  • Real-time feedback: Immediate and responsive control and positioning.
  • Non-contact measurement: No physical contact reduces wear and enhances reliability.
  • High-speed operation: Capable of handling fast rotational speeds.
  • Environmental robustness: Withstands harsh conditions and contaminants.
  • Compatibility: Can integrate with various control systems and interfaces.
  • Versatility: Suitable for a wide range of industries and applications.
What is the difference between Angle Encoders and Rotary Encoders?

Here's a table summarizing the differences between angle encoders and rotary encoders:
