Encoder Products Company, Inc. (EPC) is a leading designer and world-wide manufacturer of motion sensing devices. Founded in 1969, EPC began operations with a small line of custom encoders. Now, almost 50 years later, EPC’s popular Accu-Coders are recognized for their exceptional quality. EPC is responsible for many firsts in encoder innovation such as the cube style encoder, flexible mounting systems, and encoders that operate at 120° C. With an industry-best 3-year standard warranty, EPC’s core philosophy is that each and every customer deserves quality products, superior customer service, and expert support.
Incremental Thru-Bore & Motor Mount Encoders
Incremental encoders provide position information for a rotating shaft by producing a continuous series of pulses. These pulses correspond to increments of resolution on the code disk. Incremental thru-bore and hollow-bore encoders are designed to mount directly to a rotating shaft which passes through the encoder. A flexible tether mount keeps the encoder from rotating with the shaft and absorbs shaft run-out or endplay, minimizing loads on the encoder bearings. Motor-mount style encoders feature a machined housing that attaches a hollow-bore encoder to the NEMA frame motor. To meet varied industrial feedback requirements, EPC offers a broad range of incremental thru-bore and motor mount encoders.
Incremental Shaft Encoders
Incremental encoders provide position information for a rotating shaft by producing a continuous series of pulses. These pulses correspond to increments of resolution on the code disk. Incremental shaft encoders are the most widely applied industrial encoders in the world, with an extensive range of form factors and output types. EPC offers a broad array of incremental shaft encoders suitable for applications ranging from fine instrument control to rugged, industrial heavy duty feedback.
Absolute Thru-Bore & Motor Mount Encoders
Absolute encoders provide position information for a rotating shaft within either a single rotation (single-turn) or over the course of multiple rotations (multi-turn). The encoder provides a unique digital code or bit for each increment of shaft rotation. Multi-turn absolute encoders store turns-counting information for instant retrieval, even after power down. EPC offers both single-turn and multi-turn absolute thru-bore encoders with a variety of housing sizes, bore diameters, signal types and resolutions.

EPC offers both single-turn and multi-turn absolute shaft encoders with a variety of housing sizes, shaft diameters, signal types and resolution.
Linear Solution Encoders
As the term implies, rotary encoders generally provide feedback for rotary motion. However, with the addition of a measuring wheel, gear, or cable-draw assembly, a rotary encoder can also provide feedback for linear displacement or measurement. EPC offers a line of integrated linear measurement solutions. They’re easy to install and deliver reliable, accurate feedback for applications such as cut-to-length, spooling, length measurement and print registration.
Stainless Steel Encoders
For operating environments where abundant moisture, corrosive or caustic agents are present, EPC offers encoders with housings made of 316 stainless steel. With bearings rated for loads up to 80 lbs axial/radial and IP67 sealing, EPC’s stainless steel encoders are suitable for harsh industrial applications.
Our magnetic encoder modules are flexible, cost effective feedback solutions. They consist of a modular housing containing the encoder’s hall-effect sensor and signal processing circuitry, as well as a separate magnetic target that is affixed to a rotating shaft. Because encoder modules do not use bearings, the unit’s overall cost and size are greatly reduced. Compact, versatile and reliable, EPC encoder modules are suitable fror a wide range of industrial, commercial and consumer applications.
Encoder Products Company understands the importance of time when you have a machine down. After many years of successfully cross referencing and retrofitting thousands of both domestic and foreign encoders, we now offer popular configurations as Direct Replacement Encoders.
All Direct Replacement Encoders carry the Accu-Coder brand and include:
- Encoders that are either in stock and ready for Fast Delivery!
- Huge savings compared to OEM prices
