E8T flat miniature optical encoder of US Digital with a resolution up to 720CPR

Pewatron introduces US Digital’s E8T miniature optical encoder. Combining small form factor and resolutions up to 720 CPR, the E8T is ideally suited for medical and other space sensitive applications that require reliable position and velocity feedback. The E8T’s small package footprint fits motors as small as National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) size 11 with more than 40% reduction in package height compared to other commercially available solutions.

Utilizing US Digital’s proprietary OPTO-ASIC technology, the newly announced E8T supports up to 60’000 rpm rotational speed (depending on resolution) with excellent repeatability. The E8T features either single-ended or differential signal outputs. Moreover, the E8T features a simple and secure, push-on hub disk design and a high-retention connector for quick, easy and reliable installation that keeps assembly cost and complexity to a minimum.

Whether its portable technology or diagnostic equipment destined for the laboratory floor, today’s medical applications face increasing pressure to become smaller and lighter without compromising functionality

The E8T’s small, low profile package and available resolutions make it uniquely positioned to help address these requirements while delivering excellent value and reliability relative to alternative motion control solutions.”
