Motion control applications – ranging from factory automation to control systems for mobile machines – require precise, real-time information about the physical location of mechanical equipment. Absolute rotary encoders can provide precise and unambiguous measurements without losing track of their position due to a temporary loss of instrument power.
Designs and markets sensors for motion control and safety assurance systems. Products include rotary encoders, inclinometers, linear position sensors and a large variety of accessories. These products are used in a wide range of settings, from manufacturing to mining, agriculture to energy.
