An encoder tester with a standard DIN rail-mount package has been released by the Industrial Encoder Div. of BEI Technologies Inc. It accepts inputs from any incremental optical encoder and provides LED status indicators for each channel under test. The company says that its small size makes it suitable for use as a portable tester and that its simple design and mounting enable it to be used for almost all incremental encoder bench test requirements. The encoder tester can be used as a troubleshooting aid, a field-testing tool and for incoming inspection.
