Encoder Products Company (EPC) is a leading designer and world-wide manufacturer of motion sensing devices. EPC began operations in 1969, producing a line of custom encoders (the original Cube series) from a small, home-based shop. Today, EPC is the largest privately-held encoder manufacturer in North America, producing the most complete line of incremental and absolute rotary encoders in the industry. As inventors of the original Cube encoder, EPC is also responsible for many “firsts” in the encoder industry – the first to use Opto-ASIC technology, the first to use a flexible mount for hollow shaft encoders, and the first to produce an encoder designed to withstand the demands of high-temperature motor applications, to mention just a few. These innovations have not only been widely imitated, many are now industry standards. The Cube series was just the beginning, however. EPC’s product line today includes a full array of mechanical package styles and electrical formats to address the multiple challenges of today’s varied applications.
