Absolute angular encoder

Schaumburg, Ill.— Providing capabilities previously unavailable to the angular encoder market, RCN 723 has a resolution of 0.15 angular sec in combination with system accuracy of 2 angular sec. Operating on the photoelectric principle of scanning 131,072 grating periods (17 bits in gray-code evaluation), this track is subdivided 64-fold to achieve 23 bits, resulting in 8,388,608 absolute...

Schaumburg, Ill.— Providing capabilities previously unavailable to the angular encoder market, RCN 723 has a resolution of 0.15 angular sec in combination with system accuracy of 2 angular sec. Operating on the photoelectric principle of scanning 131,072 grating periods (17 bits in gray-code evaluation), this track is subdivided 64-fold to achieve 23 bits, resulting in 8,388,608 absolute measuring steps per revolution. The RCN 723 provides an absolute angular encoder that's mechanically compatible with Heidenhain's incremental encoders (RON 706/786). Availability is scheduled to begin 2Q 1998.
