Types of encoders and their applications in relation to motors

Encoders are components that are added to a direct current motor in order to convert the mechanical motion into digital pulses that can be interpreted by the integrated control electronics. The main purpose of the various types of encoders  is to transform information from one format to another for standardisation, speed adjustment or safety control.
