What is a Push-Pull Output?

A Push-Pull output is an output that allows you to connect either a sinking or sourcing circuit. (see What is a Sinking or Sourcing input?) This type of an output allows you to sink more current than a Totem Pole output and follow the input voltage. A Push-Pull output is chosen when an Open Collector output will not work with the controller that is connected to the encoder.
