Safe & Reliable Encoders for your Application

Working in process factories will be easy and safe with our products for heavy and light mill industries!

We provide a wide range of magnetic encoders to various heavy and light mill applications. Our encoders have the option to have a solid shaft or through bore mount depending on usage and application. All encoders are of high IP-rating which mean they can handle harsh environments, such as dust, vibration, oil, cold or hot temperatures.

We deliver reliable & safe encoders for your applications

Ruggedized and Highly Configurable

We offer full range of encoders from 100g to 8kg, magnetic, optical, with bearing and bearingless options. Our encoders come with various options of mounting styles and flanges. All our encoder are ruggedized! The encoders we offer are also protected from corrosion, salt water, acid and bases. As all electronics are fully potted and sealed they can withstand being dropped, banged and even hosed down with water. That makes these encoders ideal for various heavy duty industries.


We are able to retrofit encoders in a vast range of applications. Our magnetic encoders are perfect for replacing incremental optical encoders. They have no glass discs, can be bearingless to remove bearing failure, and we offer the highest MTBF in the industry!

Absolute Trade-In Program

Depending on volume Penlink is offering a trade-in program; trade in your old absolute encoders for high quality, high durability models!

Our goal is to end ALL encoder failures!

Process Industry Applications

Our encoders work for a wide range of applications used in the process industry, listed to the rigth are a few examples. Are you wondering if your applicaiton can use our encoder get in touch with us and we can discuss it.

The encoders measure distance, speed, position or angle. The modular incremental quadrature rotary encoders are a breakthrough in hazardous duty encoders to fit large shaft applications. They are ATEX/IECEx and cULus approved and offer incredibly reliable no-bearing construction!
