Featured Products


Optical Encoders

  • Robust and high-performance linear and rotary position measurement using a finely graduated scale and a compact optoelectronic read head that converts motion relative to the scale into position data.
  • Incremental and absolute position measurement available
  • Non-contact design – zero hysteresis and no mechanical wear
  • Robust optical design – high immunity to dirt, dust and scratches without compromising signal integrity


Laser Encoders

  • Laser encoders provide high resolution and low cyclic error (SDE) linear position measurement
  • They combine the measurement and positioning performance expected from a displacement interferometer, with the ease of installation and use associated with a traditional tape or glass scale-based encoders


Magnetic Encoders

  • Linear and rotary position measurement at low-cost, with high reliability and capable of operating in harsh environments
  • Incremental and absolute position measurement available
  • Non-contact design ensures no mechanical wear
  • Robust magnetic position sensing technology provides excellent resistance to most forms of contamination
