Product Overview:
This encoder is featured on the PG series gearmotors. All current PG gearmotors include this pre-attached, however older versions may not include it. If you wish to add feedback to older PG gearmotors this encoder will do the trick as long as your PG has a long motor backshaft. This encoder is not compatible with am-0914, am-0915, or am-2193. Reading the encoder can be done with our Hall Effect Encoder Cable, am-2993.

Encoder Pinout:
  • Pin 1: 5Vdc
  • Pin 2: Gnd
  • Pin 3: Encoder Output Ch. A
  • Pin 4: Encoder Output Ch. B
Note: Because the encoder is connected to the back of the motor shaft, the rotation is backwards from normal front mounted encoders so you will need compensate for this in software or simply connect Ch. A output to your Ch. B input and Ch. B output to your Ch. A input.

Specifications:
  • Weight: 0.05 Pounds
  • Pulses Per Revolution: 7
  • Operating Voltage: 5VDC
Individual Components in this Kit:
  • One - Hall Effect Encoder
  • One - Power Cable to supply power to motor
  • One - magnet to mount on backshaft
  • One - encoder base to connect to motor
  • One - encoder cap cover to protect compenents

Need product details April 19, 2015
Reviewer: John Waidner from Carmel, IN  
Consider this unrated until I know more about it.  A datasheet detailing waveforms, voltages, currents, physical dimensions, etc., would be very helpful in adapting this device to other applications.

Reviewer: Bobby Gintz from Knoxville, TN  
Rookie Team 5571 (RATCHET)  tested this encoder on an AM2971 Gearbox.  We were able to successful achieve closed loop position control.  We will be validating the encoder works properly in position and speed mode.  So far so good
