Sturdy, versatile encoders for outdoor applications.


Get A Quote

New Sendix 5000 and 5020 incremental encoders are designed to overcome two common threats to encoder lifecycle—heavy vibration loads and misalignment due to installation errors. Available in shaft and hollow shaft versions, they boast several robust and versatile design features that make them ideal for your demanding outdoor application.

Sturdy bearing construction.

Sendix 5000/5020 encoders feature our proprietary Safety-Lock™ design, which integrates interlocked bearings, strengthened outer bearings and large bearing size relative to the size of the encoder—enabling them to resist shock, vibration and misalignment due to installation.

Rugged mechanical design.

Their solid die-cast housing, with its IP67 protection rating, stays sealed even when subjected to harsh environmental conditions. Encoders also feature a wide temperature range (-40°C to +85°C), magnetic field resistance and high shaft load capacities of 80 N (radial) and 40 N (axial).


Encoders are compatible with U.S. and European standards and can be used with a variety of mounting accessories. They also support M23, M12 or MIL cable connections, as well as Push-Pull, RS422 or Open Collector interfaces.
