Motion-control Encoder

Its count frequency is higher than that of other miniature surface mount optical encoders, allowing the encoder to run with higher-speed motors. An LED light source is packaged with a special photodetector IC with integrated electronics and optics. The IC consists of photodiodes and a lens to focus a light beam from the emitter. Reflective code wheels may be used in conjunction with the device to sense rotary position and velocity. Linear code strips can also be used to determine linear position and velocity.
