Sensors & Feedback Devices
Feedback sensors are used to detect your mechanical device's output so that your control system can adjust based on external factors.
For example, mobile robots are able to move forward and backward thanks to wheels powered by a DC motor. Your control system determines how much power should be applied to the DC motor to make the wheels turn. However, the speed of the wheels is also affected by the load on the motor. In order for your robot to travel at a constant speed, it must have a feedback sensor that identifies how fast the robot is moving and adjusts the power accordingly.
There are several common feedback sensors that automation professionals use today. Take a look at each type of feedback sensor to learn when they should be used, and how they can help ensure your automation project is a success:
- Encoders, Resolvers & Tachometers
- Image Sensors

Optical angle encoder A170 is a wide diameter solid shaft high-end encoder that produces up to 3.600.000 output pulses per revolution and can reach the accuracy of up to ±2.5 arc. se
Optical angle encoder A170H has a 50 mm hollow shaft and an integrated stator coupling and is capable of producing up to 3.600.000 output pulses per revolution with an accuracy that can reach up to ±2.5 arc. se
Optical angle encoder A200H is the most sophisticated encoder in our product range. It is capable of producing up to 3.600.000 output pulses per revolution and has an accuracy of up to ±2.0 arc. sec. Also, it has a 60 mm shaft hole diameter, which sets it apart from other encod
Optical rotary encoder A36 is an incremental encoder that is available in digital or analog output signal versions depending on customer preferences. It can have up to 36.000 output pulses per revolution and, because of its quite small diameter, can be fitted in narrow ar
Optical modular rotary encoder A42M is of incremental type and provides up to 25.000 output pulses per revolution. The absence of bearings and lubricants makes the encoder suitable for use in vacuum environment or situations when zero starting torque
The A58 series is a photoelectric incremental encoder series that is comprised of 6 iterations – A58M, A58B, A58C, A58C2, A58C3 and A58D. These encoders share the same mechanical and electrical characteristics but differ in mounting parameters. Encoders produce up to 108.000 output pulses per revolution and depending on customer demands can have different versions of output signals: 11uApp, 1Vp
Optical incremental hollow shaft encoder A58HE1 has an external flexible coupling and it is the main feature that differs it from other similar encoders. It is able to produce up to 108.000 output pulses per revolution and has different output signal versions available: 11 ?App, 1Vpp, TTL
