How do IncOders work?

IncOders work in a similar way to brushless resolvers and rotary variable transformers.  The IncOder Stator receives a DC power source and produces a low power AC electromagnetic field between the Stator & Rotor. This field is modified as the Rotor rotates.  The field is sensed by the Stator and the rotation angle output as an analogue or digital signal.  Unlike resolvers, IncOders use laminar circuits rather than wound wire spools. The patented technology enables IncOder’s compact form, low mass, low inertia and high accuracy without high precision installation.
