The Cross the Road Electronics SRX Mag Encoder is a rotary sensor that can be used to measure rotational position and velocity. The device senses the magnetic field of a diametrically polarized magnet to determine rotational position with 12 bit precision. The device provides both a Quadrature interface that may be used for relative position measurement and a Pulse Width Modulated output for absolute position measurement. The device connects directly to the Talon SRX data port and is directly supported in the Talon SRX firmware.
The Mag Encoder is a sensor that measures the rotational position and velocity of the shaft driving your mechanism. After releasing the Mag Encoder a few years ago, we received a ton of positive feedback from the FRC community. However, you also told us that there was not an easy way to actually mount the mag encoder to a ball shifter. That is now a thing of the past with the Ball Shifter Mag Encoder Mount.
This mount allows users to easily mount a Mag Encoder to any existing VEXpro Ball Shifter. No need to modify any of the Ball Shifters that you already own! Now you can easily add a Mag Encoder to your ball shifter, and it only takes a few minutes to install.
Precise robot control just got easier. The VersaPlanetary Integrated Encoder is the simplest way to gain control over your mechanisms with encoder feedback straight from the popular VersaPlanetary gearbox. The included CTR Electronics SRX Magnetic Encoder outputs both relative (quadrature) and absolute (PWM) position signals, and connects directly to the Talon SRX without the need for a custom interface!

Most VEX EDR sensors are compatible for use in the FIRST Tech Challenge! Use these to aid in autonomous mode and other programmed functions.
Note: To be compatible with FIRST Tech Challenge, VEX EDR sensors will need their connectors converted from male to female, or by using a female to female adapter.
