A rotary encoder is an electro-mechanical device that converts the angular position or motion of a shaft or axle to analog or digital output signals. Rotary encoders are used in a wide range of applications that require monitoring or control, or both, of mechanical systems, including industrial controls, robotics, photographic lenses, computer input devices such as optomechanical mice and trackballs, controlled stress rheometers, and rotating radar platforms.

Output controlled according to the rotational displacement of the shaft

Returning to the origin is not required at startup for Absolute Encoders

Rotation direction is detectable
