Aeronautical and Space Industry

In the aerospace industry, encoder applications combine demands for high-precision feedback with the ability to operate in extreme environmental conditions. Encoders are installed on airborne systems, ground support vehicles, testing fixtures, maintenance equipment, flight simulators, automated manufacturing machinery, and more. Encoders used in aerospace applications generally require housings and environmental ratings consistent with the presence of shock, vibration, and extreme temperatures.

Examples of Motion Feedback in Aerospace

The aerospace industry typically uses encoders to provide feedback for the following functions:

  • Motor Feedback – Actuators, ground support vehicles, antenna positioning systems
  • Conveying – Baggage handling systems
  • Registration Mark Timing – Antenna positioning, airborne guidance systems
  • Backstop Gauging – Automated assembly systems
  • X-Y Positioning – Automated & assembly systems
