Inductosyn vs Modern Rotary Encoders

An Inductosyn is type of inductive position sensing device from Farrand Controls/ Ruhle Companies. Inductosyns work using the same basic physics as a transformer using planner arrays of inductive windings.

Encoder Technology Overview

Rotary encoders are used in a variety of applications to provide feedback on position, speed, direction, or angle. There are several different encoder types…
