Direct Replacement Encoders

Direct Replacement Encoders were developed by EPC as drop-in replacements for some very commonly cross-referenced encoders. These Direct Replacements are built in-house at our Idaho headquarters, and are ready for fast delivery.

All Direct Replacement Encoders carry the Accu-Coder® brand and offer:

  • The accuracy, reliability, and quality that only come from Accu-Coder® encoders
  • Our industry-leading 3-year warranty
  • Expedite options on some models

If you don't see the encoder you need below, visit our Encoder Cross Reference page. Our Tech Services team can cross most competitors' models to an EPC model.
