New BEI programmable industrial encoder is available from Variohm

BEI’s new programmable encoder offers the simplicity and convenience of changing its resolution from 1 to 10,000 counts/rev and can help reduce stock inventory for OEMs who use several fixed resolution encoders.

Based on BEI’s flagship H25 series industrial encoder

New from leading USA encoder specialist BEI and available exclusively in the UK from Variohm EuroSensor, the Omnicoder® is a industrial incremental encoder that offers the flexibility and convenience of user programmable resolution. Based on BEI’s flagship H25 series - a robust and durable encoder with a die-cast aluminium housing, 416 stainless steel shaft and heavy duty ABEC 7 bearings - the BEI Omnicoder is simply connected to a PC using a special USB cable assembly and through an easy-to-use and free of charge user interface, the encoder resolution can be programmed between 1 and 10,000 counts per rev.

Unlike many other programmable encoders available today, the patented control algorithm developed for the Omnicoder ensures that the duty cycle and phase relationship is unaffected at the maximum resolution. The design also ensures that the resolution information is stored redundantly in non-volatile memory making it as reliable as a fixed disc encoder.

Aimed at OEMs, machine builders and integrators who need the flexibility to set encoder resolution in-situ or wishing to reduce the stock inventory associated with using several different fixed resolution encoders, the Omnicoder can also be of benefit in labelling and packaging registration applications where it is desirable to modify the encoder resolution on product change-over.

Variohm Eurosensor provides sales and application support for BEI’s complete range of linear and rotary encoders, electronics and displays.
