Magnetic Rotary Encoder


Motion Control rotary encoder

RLS' 20 bit absolute magnetic ring encoder operates at speeds up to 10,000 rpm.

Magnetic Rotary EncoderRLS announces the launch of the new AksIM true-absolute magnetic rotary encoder for embedded OEM motion control applications. The AksIM offers up to 20 bit resolution and zero hysteresis in a unique through-bore configuration. The encoder consists of a true absolute encoder readhead and a separate corrosion resistant magnetic ring with a unique single track code embedded. The readhead is available in either a fully sealed IP64 housing or as a board level encoder. The encoder operates at speeds up to 10,000 rpm. A range of data output formats is supported, including serial RS422, CAN, SSI, PWM, I2C, SPI and USB with binary resolutions to 20 bits per revolution. AksIM is a true absolute encoder which means no battery backup is required and position is known immediately upon power up. With the on-board LED, error reporting, warnings and other status signals can be visualized and are immediately available on all digital interfaces. AksIM is suitable for a diverse range of motion control applications, including robotics, pan-tilt/azimuth-elevation platforms, automation systems, and medical equipment.
