Incremental encoders are one of the most  popular rotary encoders to use. An optical encoder uses light sources, light detectors, and an optical grating to convert rotary or linear position to an electrical signal for use in motion control systems and  positioning and motor speed feedback applications.


Optical encoders can be incremental or absolute and can be implemented in a transmissive, reflective, or interferential way. Both a simple and inexpensive solution, an incremental optical encoder needs a reference device to calculate motion and provide accurate speed and distance feedback.
