Auxiliary Incremental Encoder

A secondary encoder placed directly on the load for dual loop control to eliminate position errors caused by backlash and machine flexure. The primary encoder would typically be placed on the motor and be used for velocity feedback and commutation.

  • Auxiliary encoders are used to increase position accuracy and machine stability

ADVANCED Motion Controls' Capabilities

  • Most DigiFlex® Performance servo drives accept Auxiliary Incremental Encoders and provide dual loop control
