Through Bore Encoder

End of November

The REV Through Bore Encoder is specifically designed with the end user in mind, allowing teams to place sensors in the locations closest to the rotation that they wish to measure. This rotary sensor measures both relative and absolute position through its ABI quadrature output and its absolute position pulse output. Mounting an encoder has never been easier with a 1/2" Hex Through Bore paired with the molded mounting holes which allow users to quickly place this encoder on the object they want to measure. Using one of the included inserts allows for the 1/2” hex to convert to 3/8” hex, 5mm hex, or 1/4” round for additional flexibility.


  • Incremental and absolute magnetic encoder*
    • Built-in magnet
    • Quadrature output - A, B, and Index
    • Absolute output - PWM
    • Broadcom AEAT-8800
  • Factory calibrated zero-position
    • Zero calibrated to notch in case
  • Through-bore design
    • Easily mounted to any shaft
    • Bore inserts
