Mylar Encoder Code Wheels

Mylar Encoder Code Wheels are patterned discs or strips, made out of a thin strong polyester film. When used with a motion control optical encoder, these mylar encoder code wheels translate mechanical position into a representative electrical signal. An encoder code wheel is used for rotary motion while a codestrip is used for a side-to-side motion. Mylar codewheels offer high resolution (up to 1024 CPR on a 28 mm diameter) with an operating temperature of 70°C.
