Encoder connected to Germany LENZE converter
In different applications or devices, each encoder can be totally different.
The optical incremental encoder is probably the most popular position feedback device in modern servo systems. Optical incrmentalencoders to the motor rotor; as the rotor changes position, the pattern of light passing through the mask changes. The encoder produces a electronic pulse as the light intensity varies up and down through a certain set point. The optical encoder is designed to produce a cyclic pattern of variation that repeats hundreds or thousands of times for each resolution of the motor. T the incremental encoder produces typically between 9 and 80000 counts of position information for each motor revolution. These pulses are produced in proportion to the distance traveled by the encoder. The pulses are counted in the control system to determine how far the encoder rotor has moved.
in this way, if you are using Germay Lenze converter, you may need an encoder,
