Linear Measurement Solutions

As the term implies, rotary encoders generally provide feedback for rotary motion. However, with the addition of a measuring wheel, gear, or cable-draw assembly, a rotary encoder can also provide feedback for linear displacement or measurement. EPC offers a line of integrated linear measurement solutions. They’re easy to install and deliver reliable, accurate feedback for applications such as cut-to-length, spooling, length measurement and print registration.

For more information on choosing the right measuring wheel for your application, refer to Technical Bulletin TB-108: Encoders with Measuring Wheels.
