The 25T/H Encoder

The next generation in high performance Encoders - The 25T/H Hollow/Thru bore encoder. This unit features the largest bore size available in a 63.50 mm Encoder. Mounting Directly on shafts as large as 28mm in Diameter. The casing is made from a blend of nylon composites and with its "Cooling Fins" it can take the extreme heat of the motion control industry.

The 86A Heavy Duty Machine Encoder

Model 86A is an extra heavy duty unit which employs a highly reliable Opto-Asic encoder module mounted within the rugged mechanical housing. The heavy duty sealed bearings, and double 'O-Ring' seals make this unit a serious and reliable alternative to the very costly devices found in heavy machine tool applications.
