Why ProxEncoder?



The control environment is a nasty place, that's why the Joral ProxEncoder is totally encapsulated in epoxy. With an IP69k configuration that survives destructive conditions like submersion in hydraulic oil, deep sea salt water, dust control spray, or corrosive wash.

What is a ProxEncoder Non-Contact Sensor?

ProxEncoder  Sensors  are devices used for detecting rotation - in the form factor of a sensor traditionally used for linear measurement.  As a Prox Switch made detecting linear motion simple - a ProxEncoder Non-Contact Sensor makes sensing rotation simple.

ProxEncoder Mounting Styles

Classic Cylinder PE18


The classic cylinder mount is quick and easy to install and adjust.  Industry standard mounting brackets for 18mm prox switches are available from Joral and a host of prox switch vendors. 

Side Sense PE18 - BXS


Square Side Sense allows the ProxEncoder to be installed on a flat surface, with minimum depth off the end of the monitored shaft. 2 #10 cap screws retain the sensor to the mounting surface.

Face Sense PE18 - BXF


Square End Sense allows ProxEncoder to be installed on a flat surface - with axial sensor placement to the monitored shaft. 2 #10 cap screws retain the sensor to the mounting surface.
