Generally, when you hook up your encoder, it's already configured to provide the correct digital outputs. Those outputs then feed directly to a counter, controller, or other device. However, in some applications the encoder signal needs optimization to reach the receiving device over long distances. You might also need to provide the encoder signal to more than one device. That's where Encoder’s RX/TX products come in.
