Class Information
Number: 250/231.16
Name: Radiant energy > Photocells; circuits and apparatus > Optical or pre-photocell system > Light valve (e.g., iris diaphragm) > Actuated by dynamic external physical quantity > Shaft angle transducers > Incremental shaft readers; i.e., with means to generate increments of angular shaft rotation > Using phase difference of output signals from plural photodetectors
Description: Subject matter in which a signal proportional to the phase sum of, or difference between, outputs of the photodetectors is generated and is representative of the angular position or speed of the rotating shaft.
