Encoder Technology
Netzer Sensors for Diverse Applications

Netzer Precision Position Sensors has taken a revolutionary position sensing technology, originally developed for harsh environment specialized applications, and made it available for today’s broader range of defense, homeland security, aerospace, and instrumentation motion control requirements. Standard and customized rotary electric encoders are also applicable to medical, automotive, and a wide range of other applications.

The Electric Encoder™ non-contact technology relies on the interaction between the measured displacement and space/time modulated electric field. It offers a blend of features unequaled by optical or magnetic encoders.
