Smaller, smarter encoders from Inmoco

Inmocovisit website

 

The MicroE Optira series of encoders from Inmoco is redefining performance standards for its size class. It offers up to 5nm resolution with all interpolation, automatic gain control (AGC), and signal processing performed in the sensor head. No additional PCBs, adapters, or dongles are required for operation.

Patented PurePrecision optical technology and excellent alignment tolerances make Optira’s miniature sensor head very easy to install. There are three mounting options and industry-standard incremental encoder outputs (analogue and digital). Standard FFC (flat flexible cable) connectors provide the durability and flexibility needed by designers of miniature precision motion control systems. Further, compatibility with MicroE’s wide range of linear and rotary gratings and scales enables a miniature installation footprint.

Inmoco’s Optira is the only encoder in its size class that offers up to 5nm resolution with all interpolation, AGC, and signal processing performed in the sensor head. Optira’s mounting options, industry standard analogue and digital incremental encoder outputs, and standard FFC connector provide the durability and flexibility needed by designers of miniature precision motion control systems. Optira is engineered to deliver excellent low power consumption, with an available 3.3V DC version suitable for battery-powered precision instruments.

Technical specifications include:

  • Interfaces: A-quad-B or 1Vpp sin/cos
  • Resolution: (Interpolation in sensor head) 5 μm – 5nm (linear) 2000 CPR–75M CPR (rotary)
  • Accuracy class: Up to +/- 1μm (linear glass) +/- 5μm (linear metal tape) Up to +/- 2 arc-seconds (rotary)
  • Input voltage: 3.3V DC or 5V DC
  • Speed up to 5m/sec
