Okuma encoders are a part of a wide array of legacy parts, trusted by thousands of automation end users worldwide. For example, Okuma encoders, such as those which control BL motors, help the motors drive different axes numerically through a Type J encoder. In this case, the encoder’s purpose is for standard position sensitivity. In other cases, encoders serve the role of being an absolute scale which is capable of locating position. This is done through a magnetic pulse generator. This generator is capable of detecting and measuring the position and speed dynamics of the motor spindle because it is attached to the spindle itself.
