Linear and Rotary Compact Optical Encoders — Veratus™, Optira™, Mercury™ and ChipEncoder™ Series
Combining MicroE’s patented PurePrecision™ technology with state-of-the-art electronics and signal processing, the Optira delivers unprecedented performance in an incredibly small and lightweight package, providing resolution of up to 5nm with all AGC, interpolation, and signal processing performed in the sensor head.
Renowned PCB-mounted MicroE Mercury™ Encoders deliver up to 4.2 million CPR resolution in an extremely compact and light package (5.6mm installed height, 2g weight), enabling machine and instrument designers to achieve rapid accelerations and high throughput in applications where size and mass are critical. The tiny sensor fits into very tight spaces and has broad alignment tolerances for fast and easy setup.
ChipEncoder™ is a modular digital interface SMT kit encoder system that combines small size with high resolution. ChipEncoder models feature built-in interpolation and mount directly on your PC board, providing significant space and cost savings through design integration.
Robot Joint Design Guidelines
The purpose of this technical note is to provide an example of how to properly integrate motor, encoder, and gear assemblies into a robotic joint design using precision zero backlash gearing, a brushless frameless direct drive motor kit, and two high resolution encoder kits.
