Magnetic Geartooth Encoders Armed For Industrial Duty

MultiDimension Technology’s Tunneling Magnetoresistance (TMR) geartooth encoder TMR-GE series is designed for gears in 0.4, 0.5, and 0.8 modules with incremental digital outputs at up to x256 interpolation per gear pitch. The TMR-GE04, TMR-GE05, and TMR-GE08 geartooth encoders are applicable for a variety of industrial applications for rotary position and speed sensing in servo motors, energy and power generation systems, fine machinery, automation equipment, and elevators.


Features of the TMR-GE04/05/08 encoder series include:

  • Incremental A/B/Z digital outputs
  • Programmable interpolation resolution up to x256 per period
  • High frequency response up to 700kHz
  • Large tolerance to air-gap and installation position
