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. This version of the CIMCoder features two major changes to the sensor. The most noticeable is the connector is brought to the edge making it easier to plug in cables. The second change is that there are internal pull-up resistors to work with controllers that require them. This encoder works with the NI roboRIO (am-3000), Talon SRX Speed Controller (am-2854), and Sensor Screen (am-3212). The CIMCoder decreases the over CIM shaft length by 0.31".

Encoder Pinout:

Good Encoder. February 15, 2018
Reviewer: Douglas Southwell from 5533 Clio, MI  
While installing we noticed a difficulty installing the magnets on older motors, they wouldn't fit on the motor shaft. Grabbed to new motors from this years KoP, and they fit fine. Then after installing on the motors we began testing, this is when we found out one didn't function properly. Contacted AndyMark and they quickly replaced it. Now they seem to be working good.

Great product but one major flaw! April 5, 2017
Reviewer: Kevin Wood from Kingston, ON Canada  
This is a really nice product, but we ordered 4 of them and none of them worked. After a very frustrating two days of wondering what we were doing wrong, we discovered that the connectors on the supplied cables were not making good contact on any of the CIMcoders. We ended up cutting the connectors off the cables and (very carefully) soldering the wires directly to the CIMcoders. We have had no problems since! In fact, we achieved the best speed control we have ever managed using Talon SRX velocity control mode. 20 pulses per revolution seems low, but since it is on the motor side not the output shaft side, it is quite acceptable.

REPLACE THE CONNECTOR and you have a really great product!
