Board Level Controllers FAQs

How can an encoder be used to determine position and speed?

There are many different types of encoders. The basic function of an incremental encoder is to output signals that help the control electronics determine the speed and direction of travel of the motor. The control electronics then use calculations to determine the relative position of the motor. The basic function of an absolute encoder is to output signals that help the control electronics determine the exact position of the motor. The control electronics then use calculations to determine the relative speed and direction of travel of the motor.

What is RMS Current?

RMS stands for "Root Mean Square." It is the effective average current. It is most commonly used when referring to AC current.
