UR5e and UR10e absolute and incremental encoder resolution

Hello,

What is the absolute and incremental encoder resolution of UR5e and UR10e robots (in terms of number of ticks)?
I searched everywhere but I could not find this information.

Best,

I doubt this is publicly available information. :slight_smile:
Also, the pair of encoders work in conjuction with each other to raise the precision of the robot while remaining an absolute position, as far as I know. So knowing the ticks of each encoder should not be of much use.

What would you need it for?

From some past research it seems that they use these magnetic encoders from Renishaw AksIM™ supports Universal Robots for smart factory automation

Now for what exact model of the line, or if they have some off-catalogue units… but that should give you a good baseline for the encoder’s capabilities.

Many thanks, this already helps a lot!
