Omnicoder®: Programmable Resolution Encoder

Request for Quote

The Omnicoder features a patented dynamic encoder resolution that allows users to easily program a new encoder resolution at any time. In just a few seconds, the resolution can be changed to any value from 1 to 10,000 counts per turn. Packaged in BEI’s flagship Model H25® incremental encoder, the Omnicoder allows for virtually unlimited resolution variations. The simple, easy user interface uses a standard USB port interface and free software downloaded from the BEI Sensors web site. Having programmable encoders on hand reduces the number of encoder resolutions that companies need to keep in inventory for maintenance and repair activities. The ability to quickly reprogram in the field also allows for flexibility in manufacturing.

Simple Programming
Using a computer USB port and simple programming interface software, users can reprogram the encoder’s resolution on site as needed. Using the existing encoder connector and programming cable, connect to a computer via the USB port.  In the software, type the encoder resolution and click 'Program'.  A new resolution is now programmed. 

Stock one encoder type
For users with multiple resolution requirements, Omnicoders can be kept in stock and programmed just prior to installation.

Take the guess work out of specifying encoder resolution
When ordering a typical encoder, resolution is selected at the time an order is placed.  This resolution is then fixed for the life of the encoder.  With the Omnicoder, resolution can be programmed and reprogrammed at any time by the user.
