Encoder Products Company (EPC) is a leading manufacturer of premium rotary incremental and absolute encoders used for motion feedback.  Our encoders are available worldwide to qualified OEMs by direct sales and through a well-trained network of electrical, motion control, and industrial distributors.  The Americas Division of EPC, located in Sagle, Idaho, USA, is headquarters for worldwide manufacturing and encoder research and development.

Encoder Products CompanyCompany History

Encoder Products Company Inc. (EPC) is a leading designer and world-wide manufacturer of motion sensing devices. Founded in 1969 by William Watt, EPC began operations with a small line of custom encoders. Today, more than 35 years later, EPC's popular Accu-Coder™ brand is the most complete line of incremental and absolute shaft encoders in the industry. Their core philosophy is that each and every customer deserves quality products, superior customer service, and expert support.

Business Partnerships

Fostering long term business partnerships with satisfied customers is what EPC does best, and the heart of their mission. They take pride in providing superior customer service and supplying you an encoder that functions precisely, dependably, and flawlessly. Listening to their customers needs, and designing products that provide solutions for them, is a key to their success. It isn't every company that can say they have satisfied their customers for over 35 years!

Innovative Design Team

At EPC, they concentrate on encoders, making them famous for paving the path of the encoder industry and providing encoder standards for their industry since 1969. First to design the cube style encoder, now an industry standard. First to resolve mounting installation problems by providing an industry first flexible-mounting system. First to include Opto-ASIC technology, which virtually eliminates miscounts by eliminating electrical noise, and enhancing signal quality. First to provide an encoder that operates at 120° C. First to provide 6000 CPR in a 1.5" diameter encoder. First to provide a 3 year standard warranty, demonstrating that they stand proudly behind the reliability of each of their products.

Solving Problems

For over 35 years, EPC has been solving encoder problems. Custom designs, faster delivery, and reliable products are all areas in which they excel. They believe that an encoder supplier should solve problems, not cause them.

Custom Encoders Their Specialty

Through years of experience, EPC understands each industrial environment is different; you need an encoder that fits your specific situation. This ultimately means not having to make due with someone else’s specifications or configurations, but having your own custom designed unit. Many of EPC's customers have come to depend on them for this special area of customization. Using state of the art technology, they can design and deliver custom encoders faster than most suppliers' standard products - often shipping your unique encoder in 2 to 6 days or sooner.

ISO 9001 Quality Systems

At EPC, quality is designed into every product. Before it's offered for sale, each Accu-Coder™ model is developed using state-of-the-art design tools and fully tested against EPC's exacting quality standards. But quality does not stop at design. During the manufacturing process, each Accu-Coder™ is subjected to a series of stringent quality control tests to ensure you are receiving the best encoder available. Their quality system has successfully been audited to the requirements of ISO 9001:2000, an internationally recognized standard for comprehensive Quality Systems. By paying close attention to detail, their Accu-Coder™ brand has become known throughout the industry for quality and reliability.
