SAN JOSE, Calif., July 28, 2014 — With an encoding resolution of up to 318 lines per inch, the AEDR-87 series of reflective optical encoders from Avago Technologies is packaged in a small form factor for a three-channel device.
The encoders support 3.3-V and 5-V supply voltage for low-power applications. Dual analog/digital outputs interface directly with an external interpolator for high-precision motion control measurements.
The devices can be used in low-power miniaturized motion control systems such as stepper motors, electrical actuators, piezoelectric drives and portable medical appliances.
