What is an Encoder?

EncoderIf you search the definition of an encoder, you will get a vast and confusing array of responses. For our purposes, encoders are used in machinery for motion control. Encoders are found in machinery in all industries. You will find encoders used in cut-to-length applications, plotters, robotics, packaging, conveying, automation, sorting, filling, imaging, and many, many more.

Prolonging Encoder Bearing Life: 6 Factors to Consider

Encoder Products CompanyEncoder Products Company rotary encoders are warrantied for three years, and in most cases they exceed that life expectancy by varying degrees. So, what brings an otherwise healthy encoder to an untimely end? More often than not, the cause of shortened product life is mechanically induced. And, in many cases, it's excessive bearing wear. How can it be avoided?

When to Specify a Hollow Bore or Thru-Bore Rotary Encoder

Encoder Products CompanyWhen specifying a rotary encoder, should you opt for a Hollow Bore or a Thru-bore housing? Usually, either design can work equally well. However, in some situations there are important reasons to choose one over the other. In the parlance of Encoder Products Company, a Thru-Bore (or Through-bore) housing has a bore opening that passes completely through the encoder body. The encoder is more or less a donut.
