The scanning unit is 3.5mm tall and the thin graduation carrier disk, which is made of lightweight aluminum, is 0.5 mm thick. The Kit R encoder disks have line counts based on many sizes of outer and inner diameters with each including a reference mark. The disk must be mounted to a hub via a gluing process and the aluminum disks are coated to help prevent damage from contamination.

Kit R scanning units have a modular design and are available as just the sensor or sensor with a mounting frame. The cable from the sensor is a ribbon cable in order to minimize space. To pass the signals from the small sensor to a control, a tiny connector board can connect to a control via a normal cable and connector. The scanning units can be programmed after the best mechanical installation has taken place in order to boost signal quality.
