(Pictured: RLB) Courtesy: RenishawRenishaw's RLS series of three high-performance miniature magnetic encoders for embedded OEM motion control applications are designed for high-volume medical applications, optics positioning, robot control, 3D printers, gimbals, and handheld devices. The miniature encoders come in four different shapes and provide linear resolution up to 0.244 ┬Ám, or 753,664 cpr for rotary applications. The encoders consist of a miniature sensor and a magnetic scale or a ring. The sensors are available in a potted housing or as PCB board level sensors. Position information can be output in incremental quadrature TTL or RS422, as well as parallel in SSI and BiSS-C formats, with the option of a unique or periodic reference mark. The encoders include RoLin, which is designed for integration into small motion systems; RLC, which is designed for integration into high volume OEM systems; and RLB, which allows OEMs the freedom to use a cable and connector rather than solder assembly.
