It should be obvious that the “heartbeat” of a process shouldn’t stop, leaving a machine without speed or distance feedback. But outputs occasionally do stop working for many OEM and industrial machines, leaving them with a complex troubleshooting question: Where did their encoder feedback go wrong?
This article, written by Brian W. Winter, Encoder Product Manager, Avtron Industrial Automation, explores methods for correcting encoder output problems. These problems can be eliminated at design and implementation phases. It also provides troubleshooting guidance for existing installations. The two-page white paper is available from:
