Linear encoders




Before delivery the encoders from NUMERIK JENA will be tested and electronically adjusted under ideal mounting conditions. Furthermore, the sensor modules offer the possibility of an electronic signal adjustment after the mounting into the application. This allows the user to optimize the encoder signals regarding to the mechanical mounting conditions (tolerances).

The ADJUSTMENT TOOL and the related EPIFLEX Pro software was designed to simplify and make the signal adjustment more effective.

  • Signal optimization for NUMERIK JENA incremental encoders
  • Evaluation of the mechanical mounting conditions
  • Signal adjustment will be done using the EPIFLEX Pro software and a PC
  • The EPIFLEX Pro software offers a wide range of adjustment possibilities and an automatic signal adjustment procedure



The absolute encoders from NUMERIK JENA provide a USB 2.0 interface which alows the user to connect it to a PC and use the ABSOFLEX software. The ABSOFLEX USB-Adapter allows to connect the encoders D-Sub connector directly to a USB port.



NUMERIK JENA‘s encoders do allow mechanical mounting tolerances, however, it is recommended to check the function of the output signals and the reference pulse.

The NPA – Numerik PWT Adapter –  is an accessory item to connect linear incremental measuring systems of the new product generation of NUMERIK JENA to the PWT101, a test device from Dr. JOHANNES HEIDENHAIN GmbH for function control and adjustment of measuring devices. For measuring instruments with pin assignment according to NUMERIK JENA standard the 15-pin D-Sub assignment adapter NPA must be used.

In combination with the free-of-charge software module of NUMERIK JENA, the adapter enables the functional range of the PWT 101 to be used in conjunction with the LIKgo and LIKselect.
