Avago Technologies has unveiled a high-resolution absolute optical encoder for high-performance servo and motor feedback applications. The AEAT-9000 ultraprecision absolute encoder provides high accuracy for smooth motor drive performance. It is available in a modular package that enables it to be mounted in space-constrained locations with various mounting requirements. The single-turn encoder offers up to 17-bit resolution for precise angle measurement over a full rotation of 360°. The modular design consists of a read head and a code disk. Unlike conventional encoders, it can be directly integrated on the motor. Leveraging differential internal and external signal paths, the absolute encoder delivers good noise cancellation for robust system noise immunity in industrial environments.
