Safety Encoder

Safety encoders are used in functional safety technology. They generate information about position, angle, and revolution counts. Rotary safety encoders are divided into incremental and absolute encoders. When these encoders are combined with safe controls, the safety function can be implemented. These encoders are certified safety products and are characterized by safety technology parameters such as safety integrity level (SIL) or performance level (PL).
