Miniature magnetic encoders for embedded OEM applications
Renishaw’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 µm, 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.
