Vectrix Encoder where to source

Hi All,

Today I used my last spare encoder to fix a customer bike whose enocder had suffered from water ingress

I went to order a replacement from vectrix parts, but see the website is down.
Same too for dugas engineering

Has anyone identified what encoder is used in the Vectrix, and where to order from?

I still have them. I took them off e-Bay b/c I was constantly getting emails from a guy in Europe who wanted to pay half price. $225 each. Let me know if you want one and I will send PayPal info.

BTW, these were custom made for Vectrix. Before going bankrupt, we were informed that they would no longer be supplying them when stock ran out. I developed an alternative but...well you know the story.

Hi, I have some spares, but I'd prefer to keep them until a replacement hardware is ready. I know Fran is working on a replacement, but it will take time. If I were you, I'd wait to see where vectrixparts hardware warehouse ends...

Re: Vectrix Encoder where to source

Hello everybody,

I'm sorry I can't help, but, You may help me.

I'm looking for a special tool ( the left part in the picture or both parts ) https://www.dropbox.com/s/wkymjnq20qziuxe/calibration%20tool.jpg?dl=0

I bought the rignt part from Vectrix spare shop a few weeks ago. The site is down again at this time but I informed former Vectrix staff about this.

a plan with precise dimentions to make one may help.

Thanks X Vectrix, I found an additional encoder disk in a motor in a wreck in my shed, so I'm back to one spare.
I'll keep in mind that you have more available, though it's likely not worth me hoarding spares (yet)
