Absolute Encoder Touts Accuracy, Modular Design

Wed, 08/31/2011 - 8:48am


absolute optical encoderAvago Technologies announced a high-resolution absolute optical encoder for high-performance servo and motor feedback applications. The AEAT-9000 ultra-precision absolute encoder provides desirable accuracy for smooth motor drive performance. The device is available in a modular package that enables it to be mounted in space-constrained locations with various mounting requirements. This single-turn encoder offers up to 17-bit resolution for precise angle measurement over a full rotation of 360 degrees. The device’s modular design consists of a read head module and a high-precision code disc. Leveraging differential internal and external signal paths, the absolute encoder offers exceptional noise cancellation for system noise-immunity in industrial environments, making it appropriate for servo motors, industrial and maritime valve control applications, high-precision test and measurement equipment, and factory automation equipment.

The AEAT-9000 encoder delivers high-accuracy positioning with 2-channel true differential Sine/Cosine outputs and A/B incremental analog outputs all with 2048 counts per rotation. The multiple output formats offer flexibility to support both absolute and incremental position information. In addition, the encoder incorporates photo detectors for electrical alignment on the radial and tilt.
