High Resolution Encoders (HR-E®)

The High Resolution 8-dial Encoder (HR-E®) from Badger Meter uses a non-contact field-proven light emitting diode technology to provide a high resolution 8-digit reading while at the same time eliminating friction and wear of traditional mechanical encoders. The HR-E communicates using the industry standard ASCII communication protocol to provide high resolution encoded output.


How to read the HR-E Encoder
The standard encoder output of the HR-E is 8 digits. Though the encoder output is 8-digit resolution, the reading resolution sent to the reading software is dependent on the endpoint that the HR-E is connected to. The How to Read HR-E tool displays the reading at the encoder, the reading from the endpoint technology and the reading that is sent to the billing system.
