Inductosyn-to-Digital Converters

For the Accurate Measurement of Displacement; Their Use in Linear Measurements for Control Systems

With the coming of computer control of machine tools and drafting systems, the need arose for a linear measurement system that could work with digital data that was fed from the computer-controller. Optically-encoded discs at the end of leadscrews, Moire-fringe techniques using optical gratings along the machine bed, and other such devices have been used, including lasers, in applications for which they are suitable. Read full article
