Incremental encoders optical scanning



A disc fitted with a grating, having a code pattern of slits and bars, is mounted so that it can rotate between an LED and a receiver.

The light emitted by the LED is modulated by the mask and grating and then strikes the receiver, which produces a signal proportional to the luminosity.

When the disc rotates this signal has a shape that approximates to a sine wave.
