Ultraminiature Encoder from POSIC

Ultraminiature Encoder from POSIC
September 9, 2009

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.
