A range of two channel solid shaft Incremental Encoders has been developed for measurement, motion and control applications in high vibration conditions.

These are robust, heavy duty instruments which are typically used in large scale automation systems found in Steel Mills, Foundries and so on.

They have an all Stainless Steel construction and have an excellent shock load capacity.

Options include 60 up to 100000 pulses per revolution, various marker pulses, alternative connector types, supply voltage, line driver output format, etc.

Our applications engineers can assist you in selecting the most appropriate version to suit your needs.


The basic types are:

24SQ-100 Encoder, 5ppr to 100000ppr, Line driver, Cable exit

24SQ-200 Encoder, 5ppr to 100000ppr with marker channel,
                  Line driver, Cable exit

24SQ-900 Complementary parts – bellows couplings, mounting
                  fixtures etc.

Variants for all the encoder ranges are available. Please contact us with your specific requirements.


All of the above are suitable for use with interface cards, displays, counters, PLCs, etc. See our accessories section for more information on what we can offer.
