ABSTRACT
The article provides information on some considerations in selecting linear encoders. According to the author, optical encoders shine when it comes to measurements made in ideal conditions. One consideration when optical linear encoders is the critical gap, which focuses on the distance between the optical sensor and scale. Meanwhile, magnetic encoders are less vulnerable to contamination than optical linear, whose scale pitch is greater than the pitch achievable on an optical scale.
