Courtesy: Celera MotionThe MicroE Optira Series Encoders from Celera Motion provide a resolution of up to 5nm with automatic gain control (AGC), interpolation, and signal processing carried out in the sensor head. It also features wide alignment tolerances and PurePrecision optical technology designed to make Optira’s miniature sensor easy to setup. The Optira sensor head comes with two mounting options and an FFC connector and is designed to consume low power, and a 3.3 V dc version is available for use in precision instruments powered by batteries.

Optira sensors can also be 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. The PurePrecision technology is designed for precision motion control systems in medical, semiconductor, and advanced industrial and scientific applications. PurePrecision technology is particularly well suited for applications where the encoder is installed in controlled environments that require compact sensor size, small overall footprint and high accuracy.
