Typical Characteristics

HIGH-PRECISION CAPACITIVE ENCODERS ARE THE OPTIMAL CHOICE FOR MEDICAL AND SURGICAL ROBOTICS

Today, Netzer’s high-precision rotary encoders are integrated into several ISO-13485 certified robotic applications by some of the leading medical robotics companies in the world and are in constant use at numerous clinics and medical facilities around the globe.

TYPICAL CHARACTERISTICS

Netzer’s family of rotary Electric Encoders™ has been proven in numerous applications as an ideal fit for the exacting requirements of Medical Applications.

The encoders are inherently immune to magnetic fields and surgical energy, easy to integrate, and offer a cost-effective, precise, and reliable position sensor to be used in the design of medical robotics, medical machines, and other automation applications.

These characteristics, along with the ability to customize the encoders to each application’s specific needs, make Netzer’s capacitive encoders the preferred choice for high-end medical applications.

Netzers’ accumulated experience in this field allows it to support and anticipate the needs of new customers in their process of gaining FDA approval.

MEDICAL AND SURGICAL ROBOTS

Designed and manufactured to comply with ISO 13485 standard for medical devices, Netzer’s Electric Encoders™ provides the reliability, accuracy, and immunity to magnetic fields required for your new high-end medical robotic application. An additional benefit is the encoder’s small size and mass factor, making it suitable to fit the extremely narrow confines of the mechanical installation typical in many medical robotic applications.

SURGICAL ENERGY

Our capacitive encoders are completely immune to surgical energy (high-frequency RF interference) and are perfect for medical applications using surgical energy in operating rooms.

MEDICAL MACHINES

During the medical industry’s transition to smaller scanners as well as miniaturization of other machines, the unique properties of Netzer frameless, hollow-shaft contactless encoders make them the perfect choice for those demanding applications.
