Electric Encoder

The Electric Encoder™ technology offers a variety of and position sensing devices by combining the advantages of optic and magnetic encoders, i.e., accuracy and absolute output. It also offers several variants, which are impossible to duplicate using magnetic and optic technologies. Both angular and linear Electric Encoder™ boasts the following features:

  • Flexible customization options
  • Low cost
  • Very low profile
  • Extremely simple construction
  • Very low power consumption
  • Very high tolerance to mechanical mounting errors
  • Virtually no failure mechanism
  • Wide temperature range (-55 to +125 Celsius)
  • High mechanical robustness
  • Insensitivity to electromagnetic interference
  • Insensitivity to moisture conditions

The Electric Encoder™ constitutes a “missing link” in the sense that out of the three fundamental fields: magnetic, electromagnetic (light) and electric, only two have been used for position sensing. The electric field has been ignored due to technical hurdles – except for niche applications.
