Encoders & Tachometers

Nidec Avtron Automation manufactures Avtron Encoders, recognized as the market-leading brand of industrial encoders (also known as rotary pulse generators or digital tachometers).

They have been proudly manufacturing rugged designs in the U.S.A. for over 40 years and provide full support and service for all our models, even older units. As part of a large global corporation, Nidec Avtron can support your application worldwide!

Nidec-Avtron offers ultra-reliable encoders for all applications. They feature cast aluminum housings, potted electronics, and huge bearings. Their magnetic sensors also increase reliability – they withstand dirt, dust, oil, and liquids that disable optical sensors. Many of their encoders come with onboard diagnostics. They digitally self-tune for best signal, and a remote alarm contact and LED notify you if there is a problem. Yet their encoders keep working as long as they can, giving you time to schedule maintenance. Some models have experienced over 4,500,000 hours Mean-Time-Between-Failure! Keep your machines running with Avtron Encoders!
