Abstract

A print wheel 10 includes a magnetic or optical sensing strip 12 that is detectable by a sensor (not shown) to detect the "home'-rotational position of the wheel. Additional sensing strips 14, 16 and 18 may be formed about the wheel wherein the spacing between adjacent strips 14, 16 and 18 is used to define unique codes
