Help finding gearmotor with an integrated encoder with index (Z)

Hi all,

I’m having a tough time finding a BLDC gearmotor with an integrated encoder that has an index for homing. I can find many with the A and B signals but none with the Z (index) pulse.

I’ll need to run the BLDC gearmotor off 12V or 24V, need an rpm range of 0 to 60rpm, and expect the motor to draw 1A or less. The application is rotating a laser scanner ( LIDAR). So the index pulse is required for position detection. Id like to have the encoder integrated if possible.

Is anyone able to suggest a capable product for this application? I’m having difficulty finding something that will work. I’m open to looking at add-on encoders as well that have a small form factor.
