Ease of assembly of a motor encoder is improved along with decreasing the complexity of the parts. A motor 1 (Fig. 1) has a mounting plate 2 attached to its end 3 by screws 4. The screws 4 extend through holes 5 in the mounting plate 2 and into threaded holes 6 in the end 3 of the motor 1. A hub 7 has an encoder disc 8 attached thereto by screws 9 extending through holes 10 in the disc 8 and into holes (not shown) in the hub 7. The hub 7 is positioned in a desired axial position on a shaft 11 of the motor 1 after the mounting plate 2 is attached to the motor 1 (Image Omitted) and held in position by a Tinnerman clip 12 (Fig. 2). The disc 8 has a plurality of slots 13 around the circumference of the same size and equally angularly spaced from each other.
