Ideal for use with motors, this hollow-shaft encoder fits easily onto an 8mm shaft. The index channel makes it easier to find the orientation of the motor on startup.
This sturdy optical quadrature encoder can be attached to the 8mm rear shaft of a motor without need for a shaft coupler. It has 360 counts (full quadrature cycles) per rotation and can be installed easily by fitting it over the shaft and tightening the set-screw. This encoder makes use of the index channel, sending one pulse for every full rotation.
