dc.descriptionPatent Number: 5,042,157en_US
dc.description.abstractA sensor provides remote angular orientation sensing. A rotational signal transmitted to a rotatable input shaft mounted in an encoder body causes the shaft to rotate. Light signals are transmitted through a digital code wheel mounted to the shaft. As the code wheel and shaft rotate, the light signals passing through the code wheel are superimposed with light pulses corresponding to incremental and directional changes of anuglar position of the code wheel with respect to the encoder body. The light signals are propagated through an optical fiber to a remote combination digital and analog circuit which converts them into a digital representation of the angular position of the code wheel.en_US
