Capacitive Incremental Encodes Support Shaft Sizes up to 5/8 in (15.875 mm)September 10, 2019 by Paul Shepard
CUI’s Motion Group announced the addition of a new series to its innovative AMT incremental encoder family designed to support larger motor shaft sizes from 9mm to 15.875mm (5/8 inch). The AMT13 series, based on CUI’s proprietary capacitive ASIC technology, brings the same high levels of durability, accuracy, and immunity to environmental particulates as current AMT encoder models.
Designed for a variety of robotics, industrial, and automation applications, the series offers 22 programmable resolutions from 48 to 4096 PPR, CMOS voltage or differential line driver outputs, and low current consumption of 16mA at 5V.
Available in radial or axial orientations, the AMT13 incremental encoder is housed in a compact 42.3 x 42.3 x 13.5 mm package and carries a wide -40 to +125°C operating temperature range. Its digital nature and compatibility with CUI’s AMT Viewpoint™ software makes the AMT13 encoder highly customizable with the ability to easily configure the resolution and set the zero position.
The AMT13-V kit affords users further flexibility in their design with the inclusion of 9 different sleeve bore options from 9mm to 5/8 in and simple mounting tools to assist in the easy installation process onto a motor.
The AMT13 series is available immediately with prices starting at $29.49 per unit at 50 pieces through distribution.
