Feedback plays an essential role in motion control, enabling the system to close the loop on position and velocity. Specifying an encoder involves a number of factors and misconceptions abound. In this webinar, attendees will learn how to match the encoder to the application, what information they need to make the right choice, and whether an ultra-high-resolution encoder will make a sloppy system more accurate (it won't).
