Absolute Encoders: Singleturn versus Multiturn

In an earlier post, we explained the difference between incremental and absolute encoders. In this installment of encoder videobytes, we take a closer look at absolute encoders, which have a unique positional value based on the position of the shaft.  There are two different types of absolute encoders: singleturn
