Absolute Encoder

Our servo motor feedback repair services cover all absolute encoders, which use numerous code rings with different binary weightings to provide a digital data word representing the absolute position of the encoder within one revolution down to the precision of the least significant bit.

Adding more bits will divide one revolution into smaller segments, and the encoder will therefore provide higher resolution. Multiple revolutions may be indicated by additional code discs which are gear driven to give count of multiple turns.

The Absolute Encoder is unique because it will report the absolute position of the encoder to the electronics. It will do this as soon as powered up with no need for indexing. It’s one of the most critical servo motor feedback device repair solutions for any maintenance team to use.
