Distances, positions and angles — when precise positioning is required, an encoder is unbeatable. For distance measurement applications, the resolution of the encoder is in the micrometer range, and when making angular measurements, it is equivalent to a few thousandth degrees. Our line includes absolute, non-contact length measuring systems, wire-draw encoders and compact measuring wheel encoders.
Often, the differences between two encoders seems to be marginal. With the help of our Encoders Selection Guide, you can find these differences quickly and easily, enabling you to choose the right SICK encoder product family.
