Rotary Encoders

Pepperl Fuchs

Rotary encoders can be used in all applications that require monitoring rotation rate, speed, acceleration and direction. These sensors can be utilized in many applications found in mechanical engineering, the conveyor industry, material handling and the packaging industry. You are certain to find a suitable rotary encoder for your application from our broad product offering.

In automation, rotary encoders are used as sensors for angle, position, speed and acceleration. Linear motion can also be measured through the use of spindles, gear racks, measuring wheels or cable pulls.

Rotary encoders convert a mechanical input into electrical signals, which can be processed by counters, tachometers, programmable logic controllers and industrial PCs.

Absolute rotary encoders

Pepperl Fuchs

Absolute rotary encoders provide a distinctly coded numerical value for each shaft position. In positioning tasks in particular, the absolute encoders relieve the controller of computation tasks and keep costs down by eliminating the need for additional input components.

Moreover, reference runs when the machine is switched on or after power failures are no longer required as the current position value is available immediately. Parallel absolute encoders transmit the position value to the analyzing electronics through several parallel cables. Serial absolute encoders transmit their output data via standardized interfaces and protocols.

In the past, point-to-point connections were frequently set up for serial data transmission but today fieldbus systems are being used more often.


The Pepperl+Fuchs rotary encoder portfolio includes the most varied range of current interfaces for absolute encoders to be found on the market:

  • Parallel Interface
  • SSI-Interface
  • AS-Interface
  • CAN
  • DeviceNet
  • Ethernet

Rotary Encoders for hazardous areas flame proof or intrinsically safe

Pepperl+Fuchs offers rotary encoders with two different ignition protection types. They are distinguished between the ignition protection type “flame proof enclosure” (EEx d) and the ignition protection type “Intrinsic Safety” (EEx i).

Ignition protection type EEx d

  • Incremental encoders
  • Absolute encoders
