Micro Tape Encoder

Description

The Micro Tape Encoder (MTE) is MicroE Systems’ latest tape scale product offering. Their patented optical detector design allows the MTE series of encoders to offer the small sensor size and industry leading alignment tolerances that are expected from MicroE Systems with the added benefits of a status tri-color LED in the sensor and the convenience and ease of installation of a metal tape scale.

The tri-colour status LED provides installation guidance without the need for external alignment tools or oscilloscopes and an active system health signal that the customer can monitor in operation. The MTE encoder is available in factory set resolutions of 5µm, 2.5µm, or 1µm.
