your a dip ****
Since a few days there is a question in my mind. The encoder strip you find on home printers, turning simple dc motors into servo sistems...There is a way of taking something like that to convert a powerfull ac motor with gear reduction into expensive servo? I have one 110 vac motor, removed from a copier machine, with 2 revolution per second and enough torque for moving a small go-kart from my son... with my on it.
If it is posible using long enconder strip from some big plotter machine or something like that, or better, home making one with standard kodak photo film stock (In that part i have no idea how to make it...) it will be awesome.
But from something i have to start:
How to they work? Does anyone now?
I´m sorry about my inglish...

May be you didnt read well the message. It is clear and simple:
How to make custom encoder strips?
Anyway it is easier just to buy one from plotter machines (I ask on some local service and they show my one from hewlett packard at 55 dollars).
I now how encoders work, but at the time i wrote this post wasnt shure about encoder strips.
On other messages, i dont name go-karts from kodak film, or stepper motors converted to servos with it !!!!
You should red 10 times the post from now.
But i´m shure about the fact that encoder strips are, at first look, very like kodak negative film (Or Fuji, you take your pick).
Any way this post is over now. The question was clarified and overcleared.
Again, sorry about my english.
