AVAILABILITY: This part has been replaced by the updated CIMcoder (am-3314a)

Product Overview:
This encoder mounts to the nose of a CIM Motor and senses the rotations of the CIM Motor output shaft. A housing, mounted to the CIM Motor, protects the encoder circuitry while a collet spins with the motor output shaft. Pull up resistors are necessary to generate an output signal for the desired voltage level. The CIMCoder decreases the over CIM shaft length by 0.31".

Encoder Pinout:
  • Pin 1: VDD
  • Pin 2: Ch A
  • Pin 3: GND
  • Pin 4: Ch B
  • Weight (lbs): 0.06
  • Pulses Per Revolution: 20/channel (There has been a update to this specification to increase reliability.)
  • Operating Voltage: 4 - 24VDC
  • 100% non-contact design
Included Hardware: Used with:

Thank you to FIRST Robotics team 141, WOBOT for approaching AndyMark with this design concept and for working with the product manufacturer in development of this product. They wished to create a product to better the FIRST community, and deserve much credit for making this positive impact.

Set Screw Length and Locktite January 23, 2017
Reviewer: Chris Fultz from Indianapolis, IN United States  
We have a user suggestion and a product enhancement suggestion. For users, we found we need to locktite the set screw to keep it from backing out.

We also found the best retention by setting the screw into the key slot, so a longer set screw in the pack would be beneficial, maybe one with nylon locking.

Suggested tool to include .050 hex key November 4, 2016
Reviewer: Corey Applegate from St Cloud, MN United States  
Our team was going to test one of these last night. I might suggest including a hex key for the 4-40 set screw. I know with many of the sensor I use at work if there is such a small screw that requires a odd tool the package includes one. I'm off to the tool shop to get a hex key or set so we can again try next week.

To Anonymous person re: CIMcoder March 22, 2016
Reviewer: Bob Schafer from Belding, MI United States  
The encoder case is expected to be in compression in the anticipated applications. If you would be more specific about the "weakness" of the plastic case, a review of the design is possible.    More thickness, however, is not desirable, as it would reduce the available motor shaft length.

Good, but too easy to break March 1, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
They work great, are really easy to mount, and are very space efficient, but the plastic casings are way too easy to break. Not the durability i expected for a $42 encoder. A thicker plastic casing or the same thickness but with a stronger material would be fantastic.
