AMT series of capacitive encoders designed for stepper motors.
CUI Devices unveiled its AMT series of capacitive encoders designed to mount to the back of a stepper motor. The series feature configurable pulses per revolution (PPR) that can be set for most models using the free AMT Viewpoint software; the AMT10-series encoders are configured using DIP switches. The encoders are available for dual-shaft stepper motors in NEMA 14, 17, 23, and 34 sizes and for encoder retrofit on select SureStep integrated motor/drive models with external encoders. These incremental models offer line driver and push-pull output signals configurable up to 4096 ppr.
