Encoder And Sensor Applications

Encoders are used to translate rotary or linear motion into a digital signal. Usually this is for the purpose of monitoring or controlling motion parameters such as speed, rate, direction, distance, or position. When applying them, selecting the optimum model, and specifying the appropriate configuration are critical for success.  Proper encoder selection begins by understanding the role of it in the motion control system.

Sensors between a point and an object. It uses visible red light or infrared light to induct objects. Sensors become a popular choice in automation since they provide quick and reliable results without having to physically touch the object. are used to detect the presence (or absence) of an object, or for measuring the distance.

To assist you with product selection, we’ve compiled a library of typical applications and categorized them by both type and industry. These application examples represent a significant portion of encoders and sensors used throughout the industrial marketplace.

Since 2007, millions of YUMO encoders and sensors have been applied for countless feedback requirements in nearly every conceivable industry. It’s in these real-world applications that YUMO products, and the engineering behind them, are put to the test.
