High resolution encoder in a compact design
3rd Quarter 2018, Shaft power components


Requirements on encoders are becoming more and more demanding. This applies particularly to positioning applications with high precision constant speed control, where increasingly compact housings need to accommodate an ever greater number of electrical contacts. maxon motor solves this problem with its new top of the range ENX 16 RIO optical encoder. It is a mere 16 millimetres in size and offers a resolution of up to 65 536 counts per turn, making it ideal for precise position and velocity control of DC motors.

The new maxon ENX 16 RIO encoder (reflective, interpolated, optical) fulfils all the requirements for a high resolution optical encoder in a compact and rugged housing. The resolution can be configured at the factory or online. With 16 millimetres outer diameter and 7 millimetres overall length, the housing is mechanically robust and protected from dust due to its injection moulded construction. The operating temperature range is -40 to 100°C.

Easily configured online for combinations with maxon motors, the encoder can be combined and configured online with matching drives. It fits the new brushless EC-i 30 motors and the brushed DCX motors (diameters of 16 millimetres and up). The counts per turn and the electrical interface of the ENX 16 RIO encoder are also configurable online.
