Synapticon’s encoder series feature high-resolution magnetic sensors, dramatically reducing complexity and cost of robotic motion control position sensing solutions.
The REM 16MT multi-turn encoder features energy harvesting technology for battery-free multi-turn functionality. A magnetic hall effect-based sensor combined with an N/S magnet mounted on the rotating shaft serves as the main source of angle information. The single-turn position is absolute, low-latency and timestamped, so it is well suited both for motor commutation and positioning applications. The sensor comes with on-board signal processing, providing signal filtering functions and calibration routines. Its working principle is robust and widely resistant to external magnetic fields.
