How does absolute position feedback work?

Absolute position feedback provides an absolute position to the controller at any point in time. If the system power cycles, no “wake and wiggle” is required to determine the position of the scale relative to the readhead. This is due to the sensor algorithm in the read head, paired with an absolute-type scale, such as a scale with an absolute barcode paired with an incremental track.
