EncoderLAB - User Manual

The EncoderLAB is both an incremental encoder tester and simulator combined into the one housing.  PCA has been manufacturing these products as two separate instruments since the beginning of 2000. As a builder of incremental encoders in Australia since 1981 our experience has enabled us to develop these unique instruments which are now exported to manufacturers around the world.
