A resolver is a mainly mechanical device that provides an analog signal back to the encoder. Resolvers are ideal for applications where high temperature, high shock and vibration, and dust/ dirt are factors. Encoders differ from resolvers due to the fact that they are electrically powered devices devices and provide digital signal back to the encoder.
