Em aplicações rotativas com encoders absolutos multivoltas é possível que o controlador perca a contagem do número de voltas. Se a máquina usa um redutor com redução de acoplamento não binária (Ex. 3:1), o periodo da máquina não é um divisor inteiro se comparado com o periodo do encoder, possibilitando que posição de feedback não seja a mesma após desligar e ligar a máquina.

On a rotary application with absolute multi-turn feedback, it's possible to run over the feedback unwind. If the machine has a non-binary gear ration (e.g. 3:1), its period is not an integer divisor of the encoder period, allowing the position to not be the same after a power cycle. In other words, it may be shifted by the fraction of the ratio.
