The electric encoder has taken a revolutionary position sensing technology, originally developed for harsh environment specialized applications, and made it available for today’s broader range of defense, aerospace and instrumentation motion control requirements. Non-contact technology relies on interaction between the measured displacement and a space/time modulated electric field. It offers a blend of features unequalled by optical or magnetic encoders.


The VLX encoder series is a new model of encoders that is designed to be integrated into actuators. It was initially designed for compact collaboration robots, but has due to their great advantages been used in several different applications.

The Capacity encoder, can due it performance and high temperature range (up to 100°) be installed inside the motor. The capacitive signal is also immune to the motor magnetic fields.


Beside the standard assortment Penlink has the capability to provide special designed electrical encoders. The special electrical encoder products can be designed based on a sketch or an idea from the customer. We implement different technologies to fulfill our customer’s requirement.
