Definitions of the products

  1. A Digital readout (DRO) is used to read the output of either of a linear or rotary encoder.

  2. A linear encoder is a sensor, transducer or readhead paired with a scale that encodes position. The sensor reads the scale in order to convert the encoded position into an analog or digital signal, which can then be decoded into position by a DRO.
