COOL TOOL ^ 



Encoder Design 
Rules at Your 
Fingertips- 
Do you need to know if your controller has 
the bandwidth to handle the data rate of a 
5000 cycle-per-turn encoder rotating at 2500 
RPM. . . or what resolution you should specify for 
your encoder to achieve a 0.01 0" tolerance on a 
cut-to-length operation? 
You'll have the answers to these and other critical 
questions right in the palm of your hand with the new Optical Encoder 
Design Calculator from BE!, the leading name in encoders.
