US Digital Releases New EC35 Optical Commutation Encoder

Has more accurate timing than Hall effect sensors

US Digital introduces the EC35, a high performance 35mm commutation kit encoder ideal for BLDC motors. The EC35 is high resolution, has more accurate timing than Hall effect sensors, and provides simple assembly for OEM applications. The EC35 features include:

*A/B/Z Differential Outputs

*Frequency Response from DC to 1 MHz

*500 - 10000 Cycles Per Revolution (CPR)

*2000 - 40,000 quadrature states per revolution

*U/V/W commutation outputs (differential or open-collector)

*Fits shaft diameters from 0.197" (5mm) - 0.394" (10mm)

The EC35 is ideal for high volume, low cost, OEM motion control applications. "The EC35 encoder is being introduced into the BLDC motor motion control market to fill customer's needs for a cost competitive, simple to assemble, high performance commutation encoder that has the virtue of being manufactured in a vertically integrated, US encoder factory. This vertical integration enables the EC35 to be an extremely reliable product for supply chain management," states Jim Stevens, VP of Sales & Marketing.

BLDC Motor Like US Digital's current encoder offerings, the EC35 will feature quick delivery, high reliability and competitive pricing. US Digital manufactures precision motion control products, including incremental and absolute encoders, inclinometers, interfaces, drives and more. For more information on the EC35, please visit

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
