Can Old Sensors/Wheels Be Applied to the NexGen (RT8) Encoder?

Posted by London Rhodes on May 6, 2021 1:40:42 PM

Unfortunately, sensors and wheels from older versions of the RT8 can not be used on the NexGen. The RT8 encoder is a direct replacement to the RIM Tach 8500; however, the sensors and wheels are not interchangeable between the two. The old and new can not read each other, therefore you can not mix and match old sensors to new wheels or vice versa. Replacing sensors and wheels for the NexGen is as simple as unbolting the old and bolting in the new.
