Improved Inductive Encoders from Heidenhain Offer Better Control Performance

SCHAUMBURG, IL - (September 2008) - Due to improvements on the ECI/EQI 1300 series of inductive rotary encoders from HEIDENHAIN Corporation, a 19-bit singleturn resolution version is now offered, providing better machine control performance than ever before. This is a result of the addition of a new ASIC being implemented in 2008 on these encoders first introduced to the market about 10 years ago.

Because of these improvements, this ECI/EQI series also offers a multiturn encoder with a resolution of 31 bits.

Typical applications of these types of rotary encoders are in servo applications.
