Renishaw (www.renishaw.com) has proudly announced that its Resolute absolute optical encoder can now be used in linear formats with Mitsubishi serial communication protocol. This enables the optical encoder to be utilized with Mitsubishi’s MELSERVO-J4 line of servo amplifiers, which are commonly used in various industries such as flat panel display (FPD) manufacturing, electronics assembly, factory […]
Arcus DMX-K-SA-11 stepper motor features Renishaw magnetic encoder chip
The new DMX-K-SA-11 stepper motor from Arcus Technology (www.arcus-technology.com) integrates Renishaw’s (www.renishaw.com) magnetic encoder chip for real-time position verification. Its compact size enables the motor to stay within the NEMA 11 standard, which is the 1.1-inch-square form factor. A 16-microstep driver, the DMX-K-SA-11 is capable of 1/16, 1/4, 1/2 or full microsteps in three varying […]
