Modular Encoders Paired With DC Motors

The AMT series of modular encoders from CUI Inc. is now being carried by MicroMo Electronics Inc., the North American distributor for the Faulhaber Group. The encoders use a proprietary capacitive technology that offers a number of advantages over the optical technology typically used in such devices. The AMT’s design allows users to select from a range of resolutions via an on-board dip switch, creating flexibility for companies using multiple encoders in their applications. Additionally, common problems associated with optical encoders, including fragility of the optical disk, LED burn-out, limited temperature range, and high current consumption are eliminated by the capacitive technology. The AMT encoders have been paired with several MicroMo dc motors ranging from 22 to 32 mm in diameter and are being sold as a value added package. The AMT102 is configured with a side or radial exit connector and the AMT103 is configured with a top or axial connector. The supply voltage for the encoder and the dc motor, as well as the output signals, are interfaced with separate cables for connection. MICROMO ELECTRONICS INC., Clearwater, Fl. (727) 572-0131.
