AT LAST! A reliable modular encoder that requires
no calibration, gapping, or special tools to install! EPC has
taken the performance of modular encoders to a new level with the
Model 121 Auto-Aligning Modular Encoder. This new and innovative
design provides simple, reliable, hassle free installation. Simply
tighten the shaft clamp, install the mounting screws, and youre
done! See Technical Bulletin TB-511
for instructions or view the Installation

The Model 121 incorporates the latest Optical ASIC technology for
greatly enhanced performance. Common problems with other modular
encoder designs are warping and deflection, caused by their extensive
use of plastic, both of which are virtually eliminated by the Model
121s all metal construction.
For brushless servo motor applications, the Model 121 can be specified
with three commutation tracks to provide motor feedback. The optional
100° C temperature capability allows servo motors to operate
at higher power outputs and duty cycles.
With its state-of-the-art technology and durable, all-metal construction,
you can be confident your Model 121 Accu-Coder is the finest
modular encoder available anywhere!
