All Haydon™ motors are available with a specifically designed encoder for applications that require feedback. The compact optical incremental encoder design is available with two channel quadrature TTL squarewave outputs. An optional index is also available as a 3rd channel. The encoders provide a variety of resolutions. Encoders are available for all motor configurations — captive, non-captive and external linear.
Simplicity and low cost make the encoders ideal for both high and low volume motion control applications. The internal monolithic electronic module converts the real-time shaft angle, speed, and direction into TTL compatible outputs. The encoder module incorporates a lensed LED light source and monolithic photo detector array with signal shaping electronics to product the two channel bounceless TTL outputs.
