User Manual for MHM5 & MHK5 Encoders
This manual describes the implementation and configuration of an absolute rotary encoder with ETHERNET-IP interface.
"... Absolute rotary encoders provide a definite value for every possible position. All these values are reflected on one or more code discs. The beams of infrared LEDs are sent through code discs and detected by Opto-Arrays. The output signals are electronically amplified and the resulting value is transferred to the interface."
