Encoder includes brushless commutation

Goleta, Calif. – Brushless motor commutation pulses and incremental position feedback signals are combined in Renco’s new RCML15 optical encoder. The low-profile device (0.350-in. axial dimension) is available with resolutions up to 2,048 lines and offers three commutation channels. A slide/gap mechanism simplifies encoder installation. To align the device’s commutation tracks with the motor poles, a built-in ‘servo groove’ allows
