Suitable for closed-loop motion control in automated manufacturing equipment, the ChipEncoder device from MicroE Systems is compatible with pick-and-place and solder reflow systems, and requires no alignment following final assembly.

Providing rotary position feedback of 3,000 to 163,000 counts-per-revolution and 100 to 1,000 counts-per-millimeter linear feedback, the optical encoder has a three-channel output that includes a reference mark.

The PCB-mounted device is offered in a chip-scale packaging, and measures 6-by-4mm. It is available for $100 each in 5,000-unit quantities.
