British Encoder Products (UK)
Whether it’s a feedback solution for a small stepper motor, a rugged shaft encoder with 95 lbs bearing loads, or a precision measuring wheel, British Encoder Products has a variety of products to meet your needs.
BEPC's programmable encoders are specifically designed for the challenges of an industrial environment. But don't let their tough exterior fool you – contained within the rugged, industrial housing is an advanced set of electronics that allow the encoders to be programmed to your exact application needs. Using BEPC's optional programming module, users may select from 6 different output types, choose from 32 different waveforms, and program any resolution from 1 to 65,536 PPR – that's 262,144 counts using 4x quadrature counting. These programming features allow a single encoder to be configured for multiple applications, enabling one encoder to replace many different part numbers, providing cost savings on inventory and down-time replacement. BEPC's encoders can also be configured and shipped with specs pre-programmed, no on-site programming needed.
Incremental Thru-Bore & Motor Mount Encoders
Incremental encoders provide position information for a rotating shaft by producing a continuous series of pulses. These pulses correspond to increments of resolution on the code disk. Incremental thru-bore and hollow-bore encoders are designed to mount directly to a rotating shaft which passes through the encoder. A flexible tether mount keeps the encoder from rotating with the shaft and absorbs shaft run-out or endplay, minimizing loads on the encoder bearings. Motor-mount style encoders feature a machined housing that attaches a hollow-bore encoder to the NEMA frame motor. To meet varied industrial feedback requirements, BEPC offers a broad range of incremental thru-bore and motor mount encoders.
Incremental Shaft Encoders
Incremental encoders provide position information for a rotating shaft by producing a continuous series of pulses. These pulses correspond to increments of resolution on the code disk. Incremental shaft encoders are the most widely applied industrial encoders in the world, with an extensive range of form factors and output types. BEPC offers a broad array of incremental shaft encoders suitable for applications ranging from fine instrument control to rugged, industrial heavy duty feedback.
Linear Measurement Solutions
As the term implies, rotary encoders generally provide feedback for rotary motion. However, with the addition of a measuring wheel, gear, or cable-draw assembly, a rotary encoder can also provide feedback for linear displacement or measurement. BEPC offers a line of integrated linear measurement solutions. They’re easy to install and deliver reliable, accurate feedback for applications such as cut-to-length, spooling, length measurement and print registration.
Absolute Thru-Bore & Motor Mount Encoders
Absolute encoders provide position information for a rotating shaft within either a single rotation (single-turn) or over the course of multiple rotations (multi-turn). The encoder provides a unique digital code or bit for each increment of shaft rotation. Multi-turn absolute encoders store turns-counting information for instant retrieval, even after power down. BEPC offers both single-turn and multi-turn absolute thru-bore encoders with a variety of housing sizes, bore diameters, signal types and resolutions.

BEPC offers both single-turn and multi-turn absolute shaft encoders with a variety of housing sizes, shaft diameters, signal types and resolution.
Stainless Steel Encoders
For operating environments where abundant moisture, corrosive or caustic agents are present, BEPC offers encoders with housings made of 316 stainless steel. With bearings rated for loads up to 36Kg axial/radial and IP67 sealing, BEPC’s stainless steel encoders are suitable for harsh industrial applications.
Our magnetic encoder modules are flexible, cost-effective feedback solutions. They consist of a modular housing containing the encoder’s hall-effect sensor and signal processing circuitry, as well as a separate magnetic target that is affixed to a rotating shaft. Because encoder modules do not use bearings, the unit’s overall cost and size are greatly reduced. And they offer sealing up to IP69K. Compact, versatile and reliable, BEPC encoder modules are suitable for a wide range of industrial, commercial and consumer applications.
