Portescap introduces M Sense B encoder

August 21, 2015 – Portescap introduces M Sense B Encoder, designed specifically for applications that require high accuracy in a compact design. The M Sense B offersaccuracy in the range of 1-1.5 degrees, covering a resolution band of up to 1024 lines with an integrated line driver resulting in accurate positioning and speed control.

With its line driver in a single chip, the compact M Sense B Encoder provides an effective solution for a variety of applications. The output connection offers excellent flexibility for easy integration in a low-cost package.

The integrated line driver reduces the need for an additional customer-end driver by providing long communication lines handled directly between encoder and the driver. Resolution up to 1024 delivers higher accuracy on angular measurements – excellent for closed look motion feedback and positioning. Cable output flexibility is available in both axial and radial options, offering a compact mechanical design in a smaller package.

The M Sense B encoder pairs with Portescap’s Brush DC and Brushless DC motor options.
