Press Release Summary:

Positioning Sensor is optimized for performance and reliability.

August 27, 2014 - Along with proprietary optical design, Optical Positioning Sensor (OPS™) Series has built-in interpolation and AGC. Sensor can be configured with optical limits to reduce cabling and works with MicroE cut-to-length linear tape, linear glass, and rotary glass scales. Cyclical error up to ±25 nm enables positioning accuracy up to ±3 µm/m and smooth velocity control. Linear resolutions of 1, 0.5, 0.1, and 50 µm are available, and rotary resolutions range from 163k CPR to 3.3M CPR.

MicroE Systems Releases the New Optical Positioning Sensor (OPS(TM)) Series

Press release date: August 21, 2014

MicroE Systems has recently released it’s the new Optical Positioning Sensor (OPS™) Series, which delivers high performance and advanced positioning system features.  The OPS™ sensor is equipped with MicroE’s patented optical design and features built-in interpolation and AGC ensuring optimal performance and reliability.

OPS™ can be configured with optical limits to reduce cabling and works with MicroE’s cut-to-length linear tape, cost-effective linear glass, and rotary glass scales, minimizing total cost of ownership.

Multiple mounting configurations are available and intuitive tools make installation and commissioning fast and simple.  A dual-purpose LED in the sensor simplifies installation and provides real time indication of system health.

OPS™’s low cyclical error (up to +/-25nm) enables high positioning accuracy (up to +/-3um/m) and smooth velocity control.  With linear resolutions of 1µm, 0.5µm, 0.1µm and 50µm, and rotary resolutions of 163k CPR to 3.3M CPR, OPS™ fits many different applications.
