Capactive encoders for microstepping motors
Applied Motion Products (AMP) has announced an alternative encoder technology for microstepping motor position verification. Available from Mclennan, AMP’s European distribution partner, capacitive encoder technology offers advantages for applications where increased durability or space savings are required.
Until now optical encoders have been available as the feedback components of choice but AMP has recently announced this new range of competitively priced capacitive encoders for use on its NEMA 17, 23, and 24 frame stepper motors. In applications where dust, oil, and other contaminants may be present, capacitive sensors provide a more robust alternative to optical encoders.
