Unassembled motor, sensor, and encoder components for custom application motion controls


From printers to robotic arms, optical encoders tell devices when, how, and where to move when performing a function. Encoders are generally used when a motor or force actuator has a moving part that provides feedback to the part’s position. Magnetic and optical encoder wheels sense the position by light sources or by magnetic poles on the disks outside edge.

Boyd understands the importance of high-quality components and has focused on producing custom optical encoder media to achieve superior incremental movement accuracy and component durability for leading global brands. Encoder specifications define the encoder, mechanism, and the control system relationship. Boyd produces optical encoders in a variety of materials and formats to meet our clients’ exacting standards.
