Vancouver, Washington, USA, November 26, 2013 US Digital has raised the performance bar of their popular encoder module series by releasing a next generation high resolution encoder module the EM2 capable of resolutions of up to 5000 CPR in a 1-inch diameter disk. Previously, a maximum resolution of 1250 CPR was available in a 1-inch diameter disk format utilizing the very popular EM1 encoder module.
The higher resolutions offered by the new EM2 encoder module now allow many of US Digitals products such as the E5, E2, S5, S1, H1 and H5 to extend resolutions beyond the current 1250 CPR limit up to 5000 CPR.
