Does measurement performance vary with Rotor concentricity?

Resolution, repeatability & accuracy (linearity) will be as specified, provided Rotor concentricity is within specified limits. One might expect accuracy to degrade significantly with concentricity, but IncOders use the full faces of Rotor & Stator, so errors are nulled by diametrically opposing factors. This is different to other encoder technologies – notably optical or capacitive devices – where performance depends on tightly controlled concentricity.
