An electro-mechanical device that converts the angular position or motion of a shaft or axle to an analog or digital code. The output of incremental encoders provides information about the motion of the shaft, which is typically further processed elsewhere into information such as speed, distance, RPM and position. The output of absolute encoders indicates the current position of the shaft, making them angle transducers.
