Incremental encoders provide speed, direction and relative position feedback by generating a stream of binary pulses proportional to the rotation of a motor or driven shaft. Dynapar offers both optical and magnetic incremental encoders in 4 mounting options: shafted with coupling, hollow-shaft, hub-shaft or bearingless. Single channel incremental encoders can measure speed which dual channel or quadrature encoders (AB) can interpret direction based on the phase relationship between the 2 channels. Indexed quadrature encoders (ABZ) are also available for homing location are startup.
Hollow Shaft Incremental Encoders
Dynapar offers a wide range of hollow-shaft incremental encoders with bore sizes of 0.25 to 2.875 inches and resolution up to 5000 PPR.
Shafted Incremental Encoders
Shafted incremental encoders and encoders with integrated couplings with shaft sizes ranging from 0.125 to 0.625 inches.
Hub-Shaft Incremental Encoders
hub-shaft incremental encoders offering simplified installation and several tether options in bore sizes from 0.25 to 0.75 inches.
