- Zio Rotary Encoder Sensor
- Detect the rotational speed of a motor mounted on a robot
The Zio Rotary Encoder Sensor is a U shaped infrared sensor that can be used to detect the rotational speed of a motor mounted on a robot. This reading can be used to adjust the motor speed if it is too fast or too slow, and to calculate the robots real world travel speed. By using a pair of these sensors, one can also measure the robots rotation, enabling navigation based on dead reckoning methods.
U Shaped Sensor Gap: 5 mm
Output Signal Explanation: When the infrared beam is not obstructed (not blocked by the encoder disc), it outputs a logic low level (0); when blocked, it outputs a high level (1).
IR Signal Trigger: SN74LVC1G14 Single Schmitt Trigger Inverter
Dimensions: 32 x 14 mm
Weight: 1.9 g
