What’s the difference between an IncOder and an encoder?

The term IncOder comes from a combination of inductive and encoder. Most angle encoders use optical or capacitive techniques and these can be unreliable in harsh environments where foreign matter, such as dirt or condensation, can interfere with encoder operation. Traditional inductive position sensors, such as resolvers or LVDTs, use transformer constructions and they operate well in harsh conditions but they are too bulky and expensive for many applications. IncOder offers the best of both worlds – reliable inductive technology but the ease, compactness and convenience of an encoder.
