The current design uses Avago reflective optical sensors (6 in the prototype, giving 6 bit resolution, but prefer to go higher, if feasible) using a single track grey code wheel. The specification:

- 100 degC ambient operation
- 7mm thick, or less
- Through hole mounting (e.g. to fit on 8mm gearbox shaft)
- True absolute (reading at power on without movement)
- 6 bit resolution or higher
- Ideally incorporates a high resolution (365 line) relative track for interpolation
- 23mm outer diameter of housing
- Serial digital output (e.g. CAN bus, 485) of decoded angle
- Low power consumption (battery operation)
