Courtesy: Celera MotionCelera Motion’s MicroE Optira Series of encoders are designed to provide a resolution of up to 5nm with the automatic gain control (AGC), interpolation, and signal processing carried out in the sensor head. The Optira sensor head comes with two mounting options and a standard FFC connector that offers the flexibility and durability required by designers focused on compact precision motion control solutions. In addition, the Optira consumes low power, and a 3.3 Vdc version is available for use in precision instruments powered by batteries. The Optira sensor head measures only 11.4 x 13 x 3.7 mm. No additional PCBs, adapters, or dongles are necessary for the full functionality and resolution of the sensors. Optira sensors can also be universally applied with MicroE linear glass scales (to +/-1 μm/m accuracy), linear metal tape scales (to +/-5 μm/m for Optira), and rotary scales (to +/-2 arc-seconds). The interfaces options are A-quad-B or 1Vpp sin/cos.
