The optimum combination of electronics, optics and mechanics in the devices make every encoder into one of the most robust and most reliable devices on the market. High levels of protection, an extended temperature range and durable electronics enable our products to be used in even the most demanding applications.

In addition to individual devices, we also supply complete systems.

We focus on providing you with the right advice and the best solutions. We look forward to working with you to decide how best to integrate our encoders into your individual application and logistics.

We are a member of the following professional associations:

Efficient manufacturing “Made in Germany”

Processes certified to DIN ISO 9001 and 14001 guarantee you unfailing top quality.

Each of our intensively trained employees is capable of assembling an encoder from A to Z under his own responsibility. Thanks to the varied production steps and the identification of the employee, you can be sure of receiving a high-quality final product.

  • We use the latest state-of-the-art tools in the manufacture of our encoders, so ensuring optimization and quality control.
  • We have actively adopted KaiZen as part of our philosophy.
  • Our delivery reliability is 100 %.
  • Our great flexibility ensures a standard delivery time of 15 working days.

The whole order processing procedure is controlled and documented by the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system. The assembly is divided into the fundamental steps of mechanics, optics, electronics and final testing.

All final testing data is automatically measured and recorded. Continual statistical evaluations ensure the required safety.

Vibration testing

One of the most important type tests is for vibration and shock. Using our modern shaker, we test each type of encoder for at least 300 hours for vibration values and 1000 times for the shock values in all axes. This results in rugged and long-lasting encoders. For each encoder, all the larger component parts as well as the cable connection to the PCB are potted.

Temperature testing

All the information provided in this catalogue is combined information. We test our encoders so that they continue to comply with all specifications throughout their working life. This implies a conscientious design and a careful selection of components and materials, followed by a comprehensive testing in our climatic chambers and other type-approval testing facilities. Our encoders are used in vehicles and aircraft. We also test compliance with MIL specifications.

Protection class testing

The increasingly sophisticated optics and electronics of our encoders are protected against rough environmental conditions by a sealed housing. Our intensive long-term testing ensures long and reliable use.
