Original Press Release:

Portescap Pairs Superior Accuracy and Feedback Positioning with New M Sense B Encoder

WEST CHESTER, PA — Portescap introduces the new M Sense B Encoder, designed specifically for applications that require high accuracy in a compact design. The M Sense B is the first in its class to offer accuracy in the range of 1-1.5 degrees, covering a resolution band of up to 1024 lines with an integrated line driver resulting in accurate positioning and speed control.

With its line driver in a single chip, the compact M Sense B Encoder provides an effective solution for a variety of applications. The output connection offers excellent flexibility for easy integration in a low-cost package. Application industries include: medical pumps, medical imaging, life sciences, security and access robotics and aerospace/defense among others.

The M Sense B features accuracy up to 1.5 degrees for more accurate application control, reducing the risk of mechanical error. The integrated line driver reduces the need for an additional customer-end driver by providing long communication lines handled directly between encoder and the driver. Resolution up to 1024 delivers higher accuracy on angular measurements – excellent for closed look motion feedback and positioning. Cable output flexibility is available in both axial and radial options, offering a compact mechanical design in a smaller package.

The M Sense B encoder pairs with Portescap’s Brush DC and Brushless DC motor options. Additional sizes will be available in the future.

Portescap is globally ISO 9001:2008 certified, and our production site in India is also ISO 13485, ISO14001:2004 and OHSAS 18001:2007 certified.
