As a translator from German to English, I'm looking for how English native speakers refer to this behavior of incremental encoders. The German here uses "4x-Auswertung" or "Vierfachauswertung" which translates literally to "4x evaluation". I understand this to be measuring the edge changes of both channels A and B. There is also "1x and 2x evaluation" (measuring just the rising/falling edges of one channel). I have researched the Internet and have found a mötley crüe of suggestions: X4 mode, X4 decoding, X4 resolution, etc. Is there anyone here who works with these who can tell me the right terminology? Thanks in advance!!
