Owing to its passive optical design and non-metallic construction, the MR318 fiber optic rotary encoder from Micronor is designed for use as feedback in motion control systems operating in electromagnetic fields. The encoder doesn't interfere with MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) or NMR (nuclear magnetic resonance) system operation or measurements. The multiturn encoder system offers 360 ppr (1°) resolution and measures both angular position and shaft speed. The module operates from 15 VDC- 32 VDC. Pricing is $1,995 in small quantities.
