The E4T miniature optical encoder provides precision feedback for limited-space applications. Now available in 100-500 CPRs. Coming in at about the size of a nickel, we’ve added our proprietary OptoASIC sensor technology and improved quadrature for even greater motion control. Its innovative, push-on encoder disk accepts shaft diameters of .079-in. to .250-in. with a minimum shaft length of .275-in.
The E4T base provides mounting holes for two #3-48, length 3/16-in. or two M2.5, length 4 mm screws on a .586-in. bolt circle. Ease of connection is assured through a 4-conductor, high-retention, polarized, 1.25-mm-pitch connector.
The E4T was designed as an enhanced drop-in replacement for the E4P, and offers greater maximum speed and output drive.
Encoder Basics for Motion Control Engineers
Selecting the right encoder for a unique application can be a daunting task for the design engineer. This whitepaper covers commonly asked questions when considering encoders for motion control applications. From basics such as mechanical configuration and absolute versus incremental to the differences in accuracy and resolution, "Encoder Basics for Motion Control Engineers" will shed some light on the encoder selection process.
US Digital Product Shaft and Bore Tolerances
US Digital produces hubs and shafts with tolerances based on the ANSI B4.1-1967 (R2009) standards, specifically the LC5 (Locational Clearance) fit class, and recommends that customers conform to the same tolerances for best fit and performance when using US Digital encoders.
