Beaverton, Ore. CUI Inc. has introduced a new miniature absolute encoder for applications such as medical, instrumentation and robotics where limited space is a key consideration. Measuring 13 mm in diameter and 17.5-mm high, the MAS10-256-G is one of the smallest absolute rotary encoders in the industry.
The MAS10 encoder delivers 8 bits (256 PPR) of absolute position information with a gray code, parallel output. The unit can accurately measure the rotary process as fast as 6,000 rpm. The device requires a 5 Vdc input supply voltage with a 40 mA maximum current. The operating temperature range is 0°C to 60°C.
The MAS10 absolute encoder is priced at $389 per unit in quantities of 1,000. Delivery is five to seven weeks.
