Tec2Screen® simulation: Incremental encoder

Tec2Screen® simulation: Incremental encoder


The Tec2Screen® simulations make it easier to get started with PLC programming. Realistic, graphical examples guide the user step-by-step through the complex program sequences.

An incremental encoder is a system composed of numerous sensors for determining changes in position, in this case of the direction of rotation. Three inductive proximity sensors generate signals using the two toothed discs; these signals are used to determine the direction of rotation of the motor.
