M3K Magnetic Kit Encoder for small stepper motors

High resolution, Incremental and absolute encoder for small space constraint

US Digital’s very versatile new M3K Miniature Magnetic Encoder is available with incremental output or a combination of incremental and 12-bit absolute outputs. Despite the small size, only 14.9 mm in diameter, the M3K is available with an index and has incremental output of up to 8’192 CPR (32’768 PPR).

The M3K is designed to work in high volume, restricted space applications. It features a push-on hub design that quickly and easily mounts to shaft lengths of 10 or 13mm and shaft diameters from 3 to 6.35mm.

The M3K is designed to take up minimal space but still offers features of a larger encoder including a wide CPR range, Index, multiple shaft size support and latching connectors. Combined with the possibility of custom mounting configurations or shaft lengths, it is adaptable to various applications.

 The M3K was designed to be installed on small stepper motors with shaft diameters from 3 to 6.35mm.

The M3K was developed to work from 5 up to 15 VDC power supply (3.3V available on request) and unlike many typical magnetic encoders, maintains accuracy across the entire supported temperature range.

The M3K miniature magnetic encoder utilizes a 6-conductor, polarized, latching connector, providing a secure connection resistant to vibrations.

As with all US Digital products, the M3K encoder is designed and manufactured in Vancouver, Washington USA.
