Drop-in encoder replacement


Bourns has released the PEC11J series encoder as a drop-in replacement for the discontinued Alps model EC11J series. This modified configuration of the Bourns PEC11S series should enable customers to continue to support existing applications with no changes to their mechanical or electrical layouts. Testing is recommended to ensure compatibility.

Bourns’ PEC11J series encoders feature an IP40 rating, 100,000 rotational cycle rating and -10 to 70°C operating temperature range in a rugged, compact surface mount design. The encoders also offer an optional momentary switch function with standard and high actuation force capabilities that allow ease of adaptation to application-specific needs and different environments.

These features and capabilities suit this product to a wide range of applications including professional audio equipment and lighting consoles, white goods, test and measurement equipment and industrial automation controls.
