Avago's absolute encoders are position feedback devices that report absolute positional information. Absolute encoders generate a unique code for each position. When powered up, these absolute encoders do not require a home cycle even if the shaft was rotated while the power was switched-off. Avago’s absolute encoders in this category use optical technology to sense positional information.
Absolute encoders come in two categories, single-turn encoders and multi-turn encoders. These absolute encoders provide a variety of resolutions (i.e. 12, 13, 14, 16 bit). The sizes of these absolute encoders are compact to enable easier integration into space constraint applications.
Avago’s single-turn absolute encoders are designed with an integrated chip. Coupled with a highly collimated light source and codewheel, this absolute encoder series provide a high resolution output for positional information through a serial synchronous interface.
Avago’s multi-turn absolute encoders are optoelectronic-mechanical unit. This multi-turn absolute encoders consist of an IR-LED circuit board, a phototransistor circuit board, codewheels and PCBs. This construction method enables these multi-turn absolute encoders to provide absolute multi-turn positioning information without the need for a battery to provide backup power supply.
Avago's extensive portfolio of fast and easy-to-assemble absolute encoder solutions are optimal for:
- Brushless DC motor,
- and Industrial applications.
