Pairing Cable Pulls with Rotary Encoders

Posted by Ron Schlebusch on Fri, May 24, 2019

Rotary encoders are industrial sensors that monitor acceleration, speed, and direction. They compile data on shaft rotation and convert it to an analog or digital output signal. A number of industrial communication protocols are available, including PROFIBUS, EtherNet/IP, and PROFINET. Rotary encoders are used in a wide range of industries, such as machine and plant engineering, material handling, and print/paper.
