In most drilling applications encoders are used to provide position and speed feedback for proper control of equipment like top drives and pipe racking systems. However, these electronic devices require special attention when used in hazardous environments such as a drilling platform. In this paper, we discuss ways to make encoders suitable for hazardous duty.
