Measuring Wheels

Encoder measuring wheels allow rotary encoders to measure linear distance. EPC offers measuring wheels in both US customary units and metric circumferences. Urethane, aluminum, and hard knurled aluminum wheels have a wide contact surface with a variety of faced coatings, whereas rubber insert measuring wheels feature a replaceable rubber insert that is easy to set up, maintain, and replace (if the rubber wears out), and meets most general-purpose requirements.

For more information on using measuring wheels with encoders, and to help determine the right wheel for your application, refer to Technical Bulletin TB-108: Encoders with Measuring Wheels.
