Did you know the EIL580 can be used to replace BHG encoders? The EIL580 is a new generation of encoder that can replace the BHG. The mechanical differences are very minor. Electrical characteristics are the same but the pin out and colour cable assignment are different. The EIL580P range is a new generation and is extremely flexible as it can be programmed to suit customer requirements. Mechanically, the major difference between the BHG and EIL580P-T is as follows:

For example the BHG 16.05A250-E2-5 can be replaced with the EIL580P-TNB2.5FQ.00250-E2-5.
