I’ve seen different encoders used for different tasks. There are absolute encoders and incremental encoders. Absolute keeping track of angles and incremental the amount of rotations. My question is specific to incremental encoders.
Why do some teams choose a specific encoder over another. For example, why choose a srx mag encoder over a us digital s4t and vice versa. Is it due to how they are wired or is there something else? How many counts per revolution is actually needed for frc?
Those are just two encoders I gave as an example. The question would apply to using a cancoder over a grayhill or vice versa.
