Compact Magnetic Encoder from Timken
The Timken Co.

The M15 modular magnetic encoder from The Timken Co., Canton, OH, provides stepper-motor positioning and anti-stall feedback, DC brush-type motor positioning, and brushless DC and servo motor control. Features include resolutions from 100 lines up to 2048 lines with 4-/6-/8-/12-pole commutation and reference pulse options; a 0.68 in. profile, 1.6 in. dia., and 1.28 or 1.81 in. standard mounting patterns. The core operating module of the encoder is the company's MPS 160 encoder ASIC that combines a Hall effect encoder and integrated index pulse with a high-resolution multiplying circuit.
