An induction detecting type rotary encoder includes: a stator; a rotor disposed opposite the stator; a first transmitting coil that is provided in the stator and includes a first inner circumference coil and a first outer circumference coil; a second transmitting coil that is provided in the stator and includes a second inner circumference coil and a second outer circumference coil; first and second receiving coils provided in the stator; and first and second magnetic flux coupling bodies provided in the rotor. The closest distance between the first inner circumference coil and the second magnetic flux coupling body is shorter than that between the first outer circumference coil and the second magnetic flux coupling body. The closest distance between the second inner circumference coil and the first magnetic flux coupling body is shorter than that between the second outer circumference coil and the first magnetic flux coupling body.

An autofocus apparatus according to an embodiment of the present invention is provided with an image acquirer, a pattern controller, and a focus controller. The image acquirer includes an optical system which forms an image of an object at a predetermined magnification and an image capturer which photographs the image of the object formed by the optical system. The pattern controller includes a generator which generates a pattern in a size according to the predetermined magnification of the optical system and a projector which projects the pattern generated by the generator onto the object. In the focus controller, an image of the projected pattern formed by the optical system at the predetermined magnification controls a focus position of the optical system based on the image of the object photographed by the image capturer.

A positioning unit includes two or more the laser light sources disposed around a point sensor. Laser light beams from the two or more the laser light sources intersect at an adjustment point separated from a detection point, which is away from the point sensor, by a predetermined distance. The adjustment point is positioned on a desired measurement start point on a work, the point sensor is moved close to the work by the predetermined distance, and a measurement scan of the work is started.

A drive controller includes a speed compensation unit that performs a speed compensation for an object based on a result of comparison made by a speed comparator that compares a current speed of the drive object with a speed indicated by a speed command. The speed compensation unit includes a position-information-based speed gain setting unit that sets a position-information-based variable gain based on position-information-based speed gain information representing a relationship between a position of the object and position-information-based variable gain that varies depending on a load torque of the motor when the object is present at a predetermined position, and a speed compensation processor that performs a speed compensation based on a result of the comparison in the speed comparator and the position-information-based variable gain set by the position-information-based speed gain setting unit.
