Incremental encoder

Function

Each of the motors in the Robotino® has an incremental encoder. Based on the values supplied by the incremental encoder, the motor controller is capable of comparing and regulating actual motor speed to the setpoint. Furthermore, these values are also used to determine the position of the mobile system.

 

 















Assembly and connection

The incremental encoders are connected to the respective, directly adjacent encoder inputs on the power electronics PCB.


Technical documentation

The incremental encoders RE 30-2-500 are supplied by Dunkermotoren GmbH.
