Encoders are used in machinery for motion feedback and motion control. There are two main types of encoders, absolute and relative. Relative encoders need the control system to calculate and maintain position. Homing is used to calibrate the initial position. Both types of encoders provide speed and direction by means of encoding, which is quadrature most commonly.
