Product Availability:
For the 2014 Build Season, US Digital will not be able to support individual requests for these encoders: E4P, S4, E8P, E7P. We at AndyMark will be supplying the E4P encoders by continuing to offer these products: am-0174, am-0180, am-0791.

Product Overview:
This encoder package is designed to fit many of the AndyMark Shifter gearboxes, Toughboxes, and the CIMple Box.

Specifications:
  • Weight: 0.026
Included Hardware: AM Shifter Installation:
If you already have an old AM Shifter, you will need to add two tapped holes in the AM Shifter Outside Plate (or buy a new one). You will also need to add a dowel to the AM Shifter Output Hex Shaft (or buy a new one). The installation procedure is the same as the Toughbox above. If you wish to alter your existing Output Hex Shaft and Outside Plate, email Andy at andyb@andymark.com for prints that will help you alter your existing plate and shaft to accept the Encoder Package.

Installation tip:
If the encoder wheel slides loosely onto the 1/4" shaft, then follow this procedure to make the inside diameter of the encoder wheel collet to be slightly smaller:

Use a medium-sized pair of pliers and gently squeeze the collet portion of the encoder wheel. This is the longer protruding part of the encoder wheel with the parallel slits in the body. If you gently squeeze the sides together, equally, in 2 or 3 different locations, you can make the inside diameter of the encoder wheel slightly smaller. Then, the wheel will fit on the new shaft.

Over priced January 28, 2015
Reviewer: Ian Thomas - Team 4774 from Haberfield, NSW Australia  
For a comparable encoder they are pretty pricy. However the easy attachment to lots of gear boxes is a plus. In future we will probably use any old encoders and get some flexible joints joints.

mounting took some work March 17, 2014
Reviewer: James Smith from Raleigh, NC United States  
I had to do a bit of extra work to get this encoder mounted on a different gearbox than the one that is listed.  But it ended up working ok.
