Magnetic encoder serves NEMA 8 motors
EP&T MagazineAutomation / Robotics Electronics Encoder magnetic motors nanotec NEMA-8
NANOTEC NME3 compact magnetic encoder delivers modular design, allowing it to be combined with a wide range of brushless dc and stepper motors – starting from flange size NEMA 8. With a maximum speed of 30,000rpm, the single-turn absolute encoder is suitable for applications that require precise speed control. Even in harsh environmental conditions, product provides reliable readings because the magnetic scanning is insensitive to dust, shock, vibration and high temperatures. Device is available in two versions: for incremental signals with a resolution of up to 4,096CPR and with an SSI interface and 16-bit resolution. The incremental version also generates Hall signals for brushless dc motors. Two different sizes cover a wide range of motors and shaft diameters (4/5/6.35mm).
