The E8T transmissive optical encoder is designed to provide digital quadrature encoder feedback for high volume, compact space applications. The E8T is designed to be a drop in replacement for the E7P/E8P that offers higher maximum speed and increased output drive. The E8T utilizes an innovative, push-on codewheel which accepts shaft diameters of .118" to .375".
The E8T default encoder base provides mounting holes for two #4-40, length 0.188" or two M2.5, length 5mm screws on a 0.75" bolt circle diameter. A 1.28" diameter bolt circle mount is also available, only with #4-40, length 0.188" screws. The encoder cover is easily snapped onto the base and is marked with the connector pin-out.
The single-ended output version is connected using a 4-conductor, high retention, polarized, 1.25mm pitch connector. The differential output version uses a similiar 6-pin connector. Mating cables and connectors (see the Cables / Connectors web page) are not included, and are available separately.
