Incremental Encoders

Incremental Encoders, and, in particular, incremental optical encoders, are the most popular choice of sensors in applications where mechanical motion must be processed into digital information. Compared with alternate technologies (such as resolvers, tachometers, etc.), optical encoders represent the best combination of accuracy, resolution, reliability, ruggedness, ease of use, value and variety of solutions in the industry. For these reasons, optical encoders are the overwhelming choice where speed, rate, velocity, distance, position, or direction must be accurately and economically measured. Resolutions up to 30,000 counts per revolution (CPR) and operating temperatures up to 120° C (248° F) are just some of features.

Iincremental encoders are into three model groups, OEM Models, Shaft Models, and Bore Models. Each model group has unique physical styles which include many mounting options, case styles, and useful features.

If you are looking for Accu-Coder Encoders, please call us at (800) 894-0412 or email us at we will do our best to help you find the Accu-Coder Incremental Encoders that you are looking for at the most competitive prices possible. If you are searching for Accu-Coder Absolute Encoder technical information (data-sheets) please use the datasheets or product selection guide page links.

Absolute Encoders

As with all of EPC's encoders, these absolute encoders represent the best overall value available. Their simplified design make them ideal, cost-effective solutions to many problems faced in motion control and in industrial automation. They are particularly suited for applications where a device is inactive for long periods of time or moves at a slow rate, such as flood gate control, telescopes, cranes, valves, etc., and in machine tooling, printing, paper making and many other industries.

EPC offers single turn devices with resolutions ranging from 8 bit (256 counts per rev) to 12 bit (4096 counts per rev). You can choose from a variety of formats, including binary or gray code, and from a variety of output types. Also available are innovative hollow bore models that extend the application areas suitable for absolutes.

Linear Encoders

Backlash B-Gone! At last, a linear encoder solution with no back-lash or slippage. The NEW TR2 Tru-Trac Accu-Coder Linear Encoder is a versatile solution for tracking velocity, position, or distance in almost any application, featuring an integrated encoder with a rack and pinion gear assembly. Using the Rack and Pinion gear system, encoder readings can be obtained with repeatable positioning, providing excellent accuracy.

Racks can be ordered in varying lengths, and with the accessory spacer block, multiple lengths of rack can be joined for easy installation. Due to the spring loaded torsion arm, which provides simple to adjust torsion load, the TR2 Accu Coder Linear Encoder has all the flexibility and maneuverability of the original TR1 Tru-Trac. It has the ability to be installed in a horizontal, vertical, or upside down position.

Encoder Modules

Our magnetic encoder modules are flexible, cost effective feedback solutions. They consist of a modular housing containing the encoder's hall-effect sensor and signal processing circuitry, as well as a separate magnetic target that is affixed to a rotating shaft. Because encoder modules do not use bearings, the unit's overall cost and size are greatly reduced. Compact, versatile and reliable, EPC encoder modules are suitable fror a wide range of industrial, commercial and consumer applications.

New from Encoder Products Company, the Model 30M is a compact, incremental encoder module with advanced magnetic sensing and signal processing technology. Featuring resolutions up to 1024 CPR, commutation channels, several output types and two supply voltage options, it can be configured for a wide range of industrial, commercial and consumer feedback applications. An optional centering and gap-setting tool enables quick and easy installation. With a non-contact magnetic sensor and optional sealing up to IP69K, the Model 30M can be applied in environments where dirt, dust and liquids are present.

Encoder Products Company Inc. (EPC), a leading designer and world-wide manufacturer of motion sensing devices, was founded in 1969, beginning operations with a small line of custom encoders (the original Cube series). Today, more than 30 years later, Accu-Coder manufactures the most complete line of incremental and absolute shaft encoders in the industry, meeting the diverse needs of a wide range of global customers. Accu-Coder's core philosophy is that each and every customer deserves quality products, superior customer service, and expert support. Adherence to these principles has enabled EPC to achieve its goal of maintaining long lasting customer relationships.

Inventors of the original Cube encoder, Accu-Coder has also been responsible for a large number of "firsts" in the encoder industry, including the first use of Opto-ASIC technology and the first use of flex mounting for hollow shaft encoders, to mention just two. These innovations have not only been widely imitated, they have often become industry standards. The Cube Series is just the beginning of Encoder Products Company's full line of high-precision, rugged, reliable encoders available in all popular formats. The Round Series includes industry standard sizes 15, 20, 25 and 58. The Thru-Bore Series provides a wide variety of through shaft configurations for a broad range of industrial and motor control applications. The Absolute Series provides accurate positioning information even in the event of power loss. In addition, Accu-Coder has developed many ingenious, unique custom encoders for a diverse group of corporate customers.

Kubler Inclinometers

Kubler is offering a special service to its customers for the inclinometers in its IS60 series, a service unique in the market. The inclinometers can be ordered ready parameterized to a customer's specific requirements. This allows the user to install the inclinometer in his application without first having to set it up and configure it. This saves time and installation costs, as well as avoiding errors during installation.

ABB Power Supplies

By Means of the Potentiometer "OUTPUT Adjust" the output voltage can be adjusted within a range of 22.5-28.5 V DC. Thus, the power supply can be optimally adapted to the application, e.g. compensating the voltage drop caused by a long line length. The CP-T range of three-phase power supply units is the youngest member of ABB's power supply family. In terms of design and functionality, the new range perfectly supplements
