Sick Stegmann, Inc. introduces its user-programmable DiCoder CKS 36 programmable motor feedback system which provides resolution up to 2,048 pulses per revolution and commutation signals of up to 32 pole pairs. It provides rugged operation and precise performance in applications with operating temperatures ranging from -20°C to 110°C. These encoders feature Mini-Disc (MiDi) technology, a very small code disc that includes a track radius of 2 mm, permitting integral (full) scanning of the entire code disc which eliminates eccentricity errors of the code disk, ball bearings and shaft common to conventional systems. The code disk is mounted in the center of the axis of rotation so that the code disk no longer limits high angular velocities.
