DAYTON, OH – SICK STEGMANN, INC. has created a new Selection Guide for Encoders designed to help users quickly select the appropriate incremental, absolute, wire draw or linear encoder for their application. All SICK STEGMANN encoder options are narrowed down for diameter, shaft size, resolution, programmability, as well as electrical and mechanic interfaces.
“Often the differences between two encoders seem to be small, and this guide will help users quickly and easily identify these differences en route to selecting the right encoder for a given application,” says Cathy Castle, Marketing Manager for SICK STEGMANN, INC.
The guide includes a helpful dictionary of some of the most commonly used technical terms, as well as a helpful overview describing the primary differences between incremental and absolute encoders; absolute single-turn and absolute multi-turn encoders; as well as wire draw encoders and linear encoders.
