The ¢gure also shows the conversion of two-dimensional Cartesian co-ordinates to polar form. 2 Polar co-ordinates make use of a ¢xed point and direction. The distance from the ¢xed point, and the angle between this line and the ¢xed direction, are used to establish a two-dimensional position. For a three-dimensional location, an additional angle is used. The ¢gure also shows conversion of two-dimensional polar co-ordinates to Cartesian. of course, the rotation of a wheel is often a useful measurement of linear distance moved.

This has been extensively used in car speedometers, and can be adapted to electronic measurement by replacing the disc and its mountings by a sensing coil. 22) then the torque on the disc (caused by the interaction of the magnet and the eddy currents that are induced in the disc) will be proportional to the angular speed of the shaft. This is the scheme that has been used for many years for car speedometer heads, and it operates best at a medium range of angular speeds. One particular advantage is that no contact is needed, though there must not be any metal between the magnet and the disc.

ICs exist which will convert Grey code into normal 8-4-21 binary, so that arithmetic can be carried out on the numbers if needed. For some applications, conversion may not be necessary. The linear digital encoder systems provide a set of binary digital signals directly, but since this requires a slide which is very precisely printed and which will use one detector for each binary digit, less direct conversion methods are often used. A slide using only a single set of equally spaced markings can be used in conjunction with a two-phase pick-up system to provide pulse signals whose phasing can be used to indicate direction and whose count indicates distance moved.
