CeleraInCoder400x275Celera Motion has announced a new device for precision angle measurement: a compact, ultra-lightweight inductive angle encoder that can be ideal for several surgical, medical, and industrial robotics. 

The IncOder CORE is a non-contact device that features the company’s robust and reliable position sensing technology, all fully contained in a stacked printed circuit board (PCB) kit that reduces OEM system mass.

“While IncOder remains the market leader in harsh environment position sensing, incOder CORE delivers superb performance in an extraordinarily lightweight package,” said Mike Mainvielle, vice president of product management and marketing at Celera Motion. “Like all IncOder devices, it’s easy to install and uses proven technology that provides worry-free, accurate measurements 24/7.”

Celera Motion said IncOder CORE is well suited for integration into rotary joints. The position sensor utilizes a unique field-proven inductive technique, delivering highly repeatable, reliable and temperature-stable performance. The encoder is designed primarily for segments including surgical robots, medical robots, rotary actuators, and industrial robotic systems. The IncOder is offered in a 44 mm size, with a 10.4 mm thru bore and options for customization available. The company said more sizes will be coming soon.

In addition, IncOder CORE has been optimized for integration into host system mechanics. Each sensor includes a passive rotor target paired with an active stator — both featuring a large thru bore and practical M2 screw mounting features. It can be configured to output up to 17 bits of absolute digital position data in a range of digital protocol options, including BiSS-C, SSI, SPI and Asynchronous Serial (ASI) outputs. It can be supplied with axial or radial connector options.
