Press Release Summary:
Suited for providing feedback in applications that typically use modular encoders, QD12 combines 1.2 in. OD and overall height of over 1 in. with stability of bearing encoder design. Outputs consist of quadrature with index pulse and 3-phase commutation. Flexible member promotes tail shaft run-out and provides 30Â° of rotation for commutation timing, providing performance of lightweight assembly.
Original Press Release:
QD12 -The New Compact Encoder by Quantum Devices, Inc
QD12, the new compact encoder by Quantum Devices, Inc., provides an improved feedback solution in applications typically using modular encoders. With a smaller OD (1.2 inches), an overall height of just over an inch and the stability of a bearing encoder design, the QD12 can provide significant performance upgrades in applications limited by traditional modular encoder solutions. Outputs consist of a quadrature with index pulse, and three-phase commutation. A flexible member allows for much greater tail shaft run- out than can be tolerated by modular encoder designs, plus it provides 30 degrees of rotation for commutation timing, providing the performance of a lightweight robust assembly. www.quantumdev.com
