San Jose, Calif. Avago Technologies developed a series of RoHS-compliant, non-contact magnetic encoders for use in industrial applications that operate in harsh conditions. The AEAT-60xx series of magnetic encoders provide designers with an integrated solution for angular detection within 360°. The series comes in a cylindrical package that's 23 mm in diameter and 23 mm tall, and provides designers with an integrated solution for angular detection.
The AEAT-60xx series has the ability to provide absolute angle detection upon power-up, with a resolution of 0.0879 degrees (12-bit versions) or 0.35 degrees (10-bit versions), which are equivalent to 4096 and 1024 positions per revolution, respectively. There is no upper speed limit; the only restriction is that there will be fewer samples per revolution as the speed increases. The magnetic encoders come complete with housing and are available in 4, 6 and 8 mm shaft diameters. A PCB version without the housing is also available. Other features include direct connectivity through PCB, synchronous serial interface (SSI) output for absolute position data (binary format), operation from a single 3.3 V or 5 V supply, a temperature range of -40°C to 125°C, and a code monotonicity error of ±1 LSB.
Pricing: Begins at $18.00 each in 1000-piece quantities
