PCA's range of encoders includes programmable encoders manufactured by POSITAL. 


You may not be immediately familiar with the POSITAL brand name, but they are a German manufacturer, producing encoders for many of the well-known encoder suppliers around the world.  


When you select a programmable encoder on this website, you will see in the product description what the default values of the encoder are. If these match your requirements you simply add the item to your shopping cart and complete the checkout process. Don’t forget to add any couplers, wheels, cables, etc. that you may need.  

The encoder description shows which parameters can be programmed and the specification ranges that are available. 

If you wish to have the encoder programmed there are two options: 

  • You can purchase a programmer to program the encoder yourself 


  • You can use our encoder programming service 

The encoder programming tool is only cost effective if you are programming multiple units. 

If you are only need one encoder programmed, then our encoder programming service is the most affordable option. Please contact PCA Encoders to discuss your requirements.

The ‘UBIFAST’ programmer can also be ordered through our online store.
