Feeling the pulse of the motor.

Precise encoders, DC tachometers and high-resolution resolvers. For maxon DC and EC drives.

Encoders, DC tachometers and resolvers allow accurate evaluation of the speed and angle position and form the framework for high-precision control loops. These devices have to be fitted to the motors at the supplying factory, as the installation process is fine-tuned to the respective motor.

Digital encoder

  • Suitable for positioning tasks
  • Rotation direction recognition
  • Speed information from number of pulses per time unit
  • The standard solution for many applications

DC tachometer

  • Not suited for positioning tasks
  • Analog speed signal
  • Rotation direction recognition


  • Analog rotor position
  • Analog speed signal
  • For special solutions in conjunction with sinusoidal commutation in EC motors
