MicroMo Electronics, Inc. announces the expansion of its encoder product line with the addition of its PA2-50. Leading the way again in miniature motor feedback development, MicroMo now provides a high-resolution, low current-draw optical encoder in a 6mm diameter package.
Blending the best technologies, the PA2-50 expands possibilities for applications requiring miniature motors with encoders. Moving beyond magnetic technology, the PA2-50 provides an impressive 50 lines per revolution before quadrature utilizing optical technology. The increased resolution comes efficiently with a battery-friendly current draw of 8mA. Operating at 2.7 to 3.3V DC, low-voltage battery applications continue running longer with more robust feedback signal reliability.
The PA2-50 raises expectations by using leading-edge technologies. By incorporating the smallest optical encoder, Avago’s AEDR 8400 provides the foundation for consistent, accurate, and high resolution that cannot be matched by magnetic encoders. Optimized for the AEDR 8400, a custom-designed code wheel maximizes the reflected light increasing the system’s efficiency and signal reliability.
PA2-50 encoders assembled to 6mm diameter coreless motors are immediately available from stock with a 24 – 48 hour turnaround.
