Micro-RDK Encoder Models

An encoder is a special type of sensor that measures rotation of a motor or joint. For more information and models supported by the RDK, see Encoder Component.

Supported models

For configuration information, click on one of the supported encoder model names:

incrementalA two phase encoder, which can measure the speed and direction of rotation in relation to a given reference point
singleA single pin “pulse output” encoder which returns its relative position but no direction


The micro-RDK encoder API supports only the following supported client SDK API methods, which operate the same ways as those in the full-featured RDK:
