Optical Encoders

Grayhill specializes in human interface optical encoders that provide excellent tactile feedback to the user. The greatest advantage of optical encoders is their non-contact switching technology which results in an exceptionally high operational life.

Although the end-product may vary, typical applications measure discrete digital position or rotational angle. Output options include absolute or quadrature 2-bit binary code.

Custom shaft and threaded bushing sizes are available. To increase the functions in one control, Grayhill offers optical encoders with concentric shafts, joysticks and pushbuttons integrated into compact devices.

Engineering information for optical encoders:

Typical applications include:

  • Healthcare electronics, including patient
    monitors, ventilators and imagers
  • Communication systems, including twoway
    radios and software defined radios
  • Navigation devices for ground vehicles
    and avionic systems
  • Precision test and measuring equipment
  • Sound mixing and editing consoles
  • Automotive climate control and
    entertainment systems

Customization can include:

  • Custom detents (clicks) and tactile feel
  • Modified shaft lengths and flats
  • Multiple termination and cabling options
  • Custom electronics for unique outputs
  • Special packaging such as custom mounts
