Absolute Linear Encoder AP3403L
POSIC launches the linear absolute encoder kit AP3403L. It uses a 2-track Nonius scale and provides two SSI outputs, from which the absolute position is calculated. The absolute stroke ranges up to 38 mm. The standard scale has a length of 538 mm and can simply be cut to the desired length. The encoder housing is extremely small and measures only 11 x 11 x 0.9 mm, the scale thickness is also only 0.9 mm. Due to its Eddy-current sensing principle, the encoder is robust against dust, particles, oil, grease, liquids and immune to magnetic fields.
Target markets include industrial and laboratory automation, medical devices, laboratory-equipment and robotics.
The AP3403L encoder kit and the corresponding Evaluation and Programming Tool are available from stock.
Linear Encoder in SMD-housing IT5602L
POSIC launches the IT5602L linear encoder, which comes in a tiny SMD-format. Resolution and maximum speed are field-programmable and can be set down to 0.04 um and to 10 m/s respectively. The output signals are A and B in quadrature and an Index-pulse that is synchronized to the A and B signals. Thanks to the eddy-current sensing mechanism, the encoder is insensitive to magnetic fields and therefore particularly suited for integration in rotary and linear direct drives, voice coil actuators, solenoids and other magnetic actuators.
Target markets include industrial and laboratory automation with applications such as pick & place machines, inspection- and test-equipment, robotics and machine-tooling
The IT5602L encoder kit with scales of various lengths and an Evaluation and Programming Tool are available from POSIC’s webshop.
