Incremental encoders

The term incremental encoder relates to sensors used to record positional changes (linear or rotating) that can measure both the distance and direction of travel.
They are also known as optical encoders.
Unlike measuring systems that work continuously, incremental encoders feature a solid measure with a repeating periodic counting track.
The measurement is based on a directional reference and a count.
