What is a magnetic encoder?
Magnetic scales are a type of rotary encoder that uses sensors to identify changes in magnetic fields from a rotating magnetized wheel or ring.
There are 3 major components in a magnetic encoder:
- Sensing Circuit
- A rotating wheel or ring
- A series of magnetic poles around the circumference of the wheel or ring
As the wheel or ring spins past the magnetic sensor, the poles cause a predictable response in the sensor based on the strength of the magnetic field. The magnetic response is fed through a signal conditioning electrical circuit and output as a digital signal to the controlling device.
The number of magnetized pole pairs on the wheel pole, the number of sensors, and the type of electrical circuit all work together to determine the resolution of the magnetic scale. The key to using magnetism as the element to produce a signal is that it is unaffected by very demanding environments – including dust, moisture, and extreme temperatures, and shock.
How Do Magnetic encoders Work?
An optical linear encoder uses light (optics) to identify unique positions for the encoder, while a magnetic scale uses the same principle to determine a position as an optical encoder, but it does it using magnetic fields rather than light.
