Ultraminiature Encoder from POSIC

Ultraminiature Encoder from POSIC
POSIC S.A.

The IT3401 inductive encoder kit from POSIC S.A., Neuchâtel, Switzerland, is 11 by 11 mm, 0.9 mm thick, and provides A and B signals in quadrature and an index signal as a mechanical reference. The linear or rotary targets are 0.6 mm thick strips/disks that are supplied in different lengths or diameters. Linear resolution is from 0.3 µm at 0.5 m/s to 150 µm at 50 m/s; rotation resolution depends on the disk diameter and is 12-bit with a 28 mm dia. disk. Applications include mechatronics and motion-control with magnetic actuators such as brushed and brushless motors, voice coil actuators, and linear drives, X-Y stages.
