Encoders
OEL8G-K 8 Bit Gray Code Encoder
The OEL8G-K absolute encoder (formerly OGR8G-M1) produces a gray coded digital output with a resolution of 255 discrete counts in each direction. This contactless system uses optoelectronics to identify each position, which eliminates the wear usually associated with analog potentiometer outputs.
