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 is the E4P, 360 count encoder from US Digital. Two (2) encoder kits are included in this package. This is the same package that was donated by US Digital for the 2011 FIRST Robotics Competition.

Check here for E4P assembly instructions.

Notice that this encoder has a 360-count HUBDISK, while the AndyMark part am-0174 and am-0180 uses a E4P encoder with a 250 count encoder.

Your kit includes two (2) E4P-360-250-D-D-D-B. These are miniature optical encoders with two-channel quadrature outputs. They are 360 codes per revolution and fit on a 0.25" shaft.

Included Hardware:
  • Two - Bases (US Digital Part: BASE-E4P-360-D)
  • Two - PCB Circuit Boards (PCBA-E4P-360)
  • Four - Screws (SCREW-348-250-PH)
  • Two - HUBDISK's (HUBDISK-E4P-360-250)
  • Two - Covers (COVER-E4P-360-D)
  • Two - Cables (CA-MIC4-W4-NC-3)
  • One - Spacer Tool
See the E4P web page for more information, and the FAQ page about US Digital and FIRST.

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.

Fit perfect and work as advertised February 19, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Michigan  
This is the first year we have used encoders and a short to the frame made sure that our originals released some white smoke.  These shipped same day and were just what we needed.  Kids had them programmed and operational within an hour of installation.

Reviewer: Will from Honolulu, HI  
One of the encoders was slightly off and these guys replaced it immediately, no questions asked. Best service in the business.
