The Encoder Selector Tool: Find the right encoder fast

October 5, 2020

We understand it can be tricky to navigate all the different kinds of encoders out there. So, we’ve built a tool that will help you identify encoder options for your specific requirements from across the HEIDENHAIN Family of Brands. In building the tool, we took a particularly deep dive into one of the more delicate areas of motion control, automation and some of the specific applications that rely on it most:

• Motor drive
• Robotics
• Oil and gas
• Medical
• Printing
• Wind energy
• General automation

From there, you can narrow down your search even further by choosing they type of application and encoder performance you’re looking for. The results will provide some suitable encoder options for your application as well as more product materials and resources.

Use our encoder selector now.

How to find the right encoder for a servo motor

Servo motors are a kind of direct drive motor that, generally speaking, pack a lot of power into a component that doesn’t need to take up a lot of space. On average, they 2-3 times more rated torque and 5-10 times more rated torque over short periods. This makes them ideal for high-tech machinery and […]
