Bearing Encoder vs Modular Encoder – Making the Right Choice

March 20, 2013

The following is a comparison of Bearing Encoders vs Modular (Bearingless) Encoders for use in Brushless DC Motors. Construction Bearing encoders have a shaft that is centered to the body of the encoder on a bearing system. Modular encoders have a shaft that does not use bearings so the shaft/disk...
