Introducing the NEW Model 25SP Programmable Shaft Encoder
Using the optional programming module, users may select from 6 output types, 32 different waveforms, and any resolution from 1 to 65,536 CPR – that's 262,144 counts using 4x quadrature counting. You can have a single encoder configured for multiple applications, providing cost savings on inventory and down-time replacement.

The Basics Of How An Encoder Works
Before you can fully understand how an encoder works, you should first understand what an encoder is and what it does. An encoder is a sensing device that provides feedback from the physical world-- it converts motion to an electrical signal which can be read by some type of control device, such as a counter or PLC. The control device can then use that signal to control a conditional event, such as activating a print head to create a mark at a specific location.
There are several variables to consider when choosing an encoder. The most common are mounting style, resolution, output type, frequency response, accuracy, and electrical connections. Environment also plays a role: specifically, encoders must withstand a range of conditions such as moisture and dust that can seep into internal optics and electronics. Sealed encoders are available to address this. Encoders are also available that address other environmental conditions, including exposure to corrosive and caustic chemicals and ambient temperatures that reach up to 120° C.
