Micro Motion Absolute™ Rotary Encoders provide absolute position after powering up your system, even if motion occurred when power was off. MicroE Systems Micro Motion Absolute™ technology uses a small initial rotary movement on power-up so that your controller will know the absolute position with certainty. You can quickly restart with confidence even when sensitive, valuable workpieces are in the motion system.
Micro Motion Absolute™ Rotary Encoders acquire absolute position from their pre-programmed absolute track. By putting absolute position marks at unique locations, as soon as the motion control system passes through a small rotation, typically 4º – 7º, your controller will have the absolute position.
Position feedback is sent to the controller with BiSS or SPI high-speed serial formats using an FPGA in your controller and software that is developed collaboratively with MicroE Systems. Single and multi-axis versions of the interface are possible.
Since Micro Motion Absolute™ Rotary Encoders are based on MicroE Systems’ widely-used and proven optical encoder sensors, they have all of the benefits of their incremental encoder products:
- High resolution, accuracy, and repeatability enables high-precision motion feedback and servo control
- Small sensors, including models that can fit into the most compact spaces
- PC board mount-sensors, as small as 7mm x 11mm, that can fit onto a small PC board of any shape
- Low power consumption – low as 0.3W
- Reliable long-life operation
