Abstract

The apparatus includes a light source, one or more photosensitive elements and a continuously rotating coding disk. This may be a glass disk provided with opaque and transparent portions. Pulses, which are accurately timed with respect to each other and to the speed of the driving means, are obtained. The advantages are that the parts are simple; there is no wear as in mechanically operated timers; and greater flexibility is attained by interchanging disks having various patterns.
