AEAT-601B magnetic encoder

From Avago Technologies comes a compact integrated incremental magnetic encoder for speed detection, knob control, and rotary encoder applications. The AEAT-601B encoder, which is designed in a protective plastic housing for durability and high-temperature performance, is easy to install and provides a resolution of 256 cycles per revolutions (CPR).

Avago's AEAT-601B incremental magnetic encoder features an integrated solution for angular detection within a complete rotation of 360. The use of magnetic technology for motion control and sensing activities enables non-contact operation free from mechanical wear and tear. Moreover, this incremental magnetic encoder has three-channel output enabling an index channel for every complete 360 full rotation.

The AEAT-601B provides designers with a closed loop feedback system to enable the device to provide more precise readings for their position control applications, which results in better motor position control. In addition, this magnetic incremental encoder from Avago will help designers lower manufacturing costs while providing superior performance. Avago's AEAT-601B incremental magnetic encoder is ideally suited for use in systems such as: motor and valve control systems, pan and tilt systems for security cameras and thread winding machines.

The encoder features contactless sensing technology, three-channel output and single 5V supply. The device promises easy assembly, does not require signal adjustment and offers direct connectivity through cable output. The AEAT-601B operates at -40C to 125C and is RoHS-compliant.

Avago's AEAT-601B incremental magnetic encoder is priced at $18.50 each in 1,000-piece quantities. Samples and production quantities are available now through Avago's direct sales channel and worldwide distribution partners.
