Telemecanique Encoders

Incremental encoders:

  • Calculation of position and/or speed by counting pulses per revolution,
  • Parameterable version (resolution 256 to 80 000 points).

Absolute single turn encoders:

  • Reading position within a revolution

Absolute multiturn encoders:

  • Reading position within a revolution and indication of the number of revolutions

Communicating absolute multiturn encoders:

  • Reading position and speed with CANopen or PROFIBUS-DP communication interface

Main characteristics:

  • Reliability provided by in-line (3 heads) differential optical reading, high tolerance to: the accumulation of dirt, temperature, and aging.

Incremental and absolute encoders:

  • 3 housing diameters: 40, 58, and 90 mm
  • 2 shaft types: modular solid or through shafts using reduction collars
  • All resolutions: from 100 to 80 000 points

Communicating absolute multiturn encoders:

  • Housing diameter: 58 mm
  • 2 shaft types: modular solid or hollow shafts using reduction collars
  • Resolution: 8192 points /4096 turns
  • Integration in the SyCon software environment.


A range of innovative rotary encoders opened to field BUS and greatly simplify resolution parameter-setting.



  • Packaging, cutting machines, robots, cranes, materials handling, automatic dispensers, printing shops, continuous processes, conveyor systems, etc.
