presents a new range of programmable encoders recently introduced by Autotech.
Autotech’s Smart-Encoder is a new line of encoders that can be easily configured without a computer or software. Designed in response to feedback from users, the programmable encoders eliminate the need for plants to deal with several part numbers for different encoders or having to take a laptop and special cables along to program them.
The Smart-Encoder addresses a key gap in the market wherein advancements in functionality as well as reliability of encoders from major suppliers have only resulted in an increasing number of different models and part numbers that plants have to contend with in their stock rooms. With thousands of different part numbers and unacceptable delivery times, suppliers are forced to offer ‘express service’ at additional cost.
Autotech’s Smart-Encoder features a built-in display and an extremely simple user interface with just two buttons to configure the encoder right on the machine in seconds without a laptop or software. In addition to being price competitive, Smart-Encoder also comes with many different mechanical configurations to cover the vast majority of applications.
