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.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
