Introducing the E7MD and E7MS

Vancouver, WA - US Digital is proud to announce the release of two new metal optical kit encoders, the E7MD and E7MS.

The E7MD and E7MS are low cost rotary optical encoders with a machined aluminum enclosure which utilizes a polarized Molex connector. These encoders provide either a single-ended or differential quadrature encoder output in a convenient mechanical package. Both encoders are specifically designed for high volume, cost sensitive OEM motion control applications where digital encoder feedback and moderate resolutions are required.

The E7MD and E7MS are designed to easily mount to and dismount from an existing shaft to provide digital feedback information. These encoders are quick and simple to assemble, eliminating the need for highly skilled assembly personnel.

Both the E7MD and E7MS are easy to add to existing applications and only consists of four main components: base, cover, codewheel and encoder module PCB. The E7MD and E7MS are available from stock for immediate delivery.
