Our 100 Series of technical bulletins will give you specific information about EPC encoders, as well as guidance in specifying the right encoders and accessories for your applications.
The CE (Conformite European) mark indicates that a product complies with any or all of the European Union (EU) directives, and will affect you only if your system is to be sold in Europe.
EPC is often asked, “Why are your part numbers so long?” The answer is that EPC’s encoders are highly-configurable sensing devices with many features and options.
Encoder Products Company (EPC) offers several index pulse gating options on most encoder models. The index pulse is also referred to as the reference, marker pulse, or home pulse.
Encoder Products Company uses the international standard IP Code, International Protection Marking, IEC standard 60529, for specifying the sealing qualities of our units.
In an encoder, mechanical jitter is any vibration in the assembly affecting the relationship between signal producing components (i.e., disk, sensor, and light source).
A common method for creating a linear measuring solution is to use a rotary encoder in conjunction with a measuring wheel. Learn how to find the right wheel for your linear measurement application.
Choosing the correct number of channels and the correct output type for an encoder can be the determining factor in whether or not a feedback system functions properly.
The RX/TX and the RX/TXD allow an existing encoder with a single-ended output (Open Collector, Pull-up, or Push-Pull) to be used in applications where the differential signal type is required.
The economical M12 style connector offers a smaller profile than some other connectors , and offers sealing up to IP69K.
Size 25 shaft encoders and their 58 mm European equivalents are among the most popular encoders in the world. This Tech Bulletin identifies and compares features of EPC's Size 25 models.
Maintaining industry acceptable dimensions on shafts and bores is necessary to ensure the proper fit between encoders and the machinery they are installed on.
