Part no.: Netzer DS-16
• Minitature Size, 16mm diameter
• SSI, BiSS-C
• Up to 17 bits resolution
• High tolerance to EMI, RFI and magnetic fields
The DS-16 is a member of the DS series of Electric Encoders a product line based on Netzer Precision Motion Sensor proprietary technology. Extremely compact (16mm diameter), lightweight (as little as 4 grams) and high performance (up to 17 bit resolution) these encoders provide unparalleled performance. The Electric Encoder is unique in being holistic, i.e., its output reading is the averaged outcome of the whole area of the rotor, This feature makes the Electric Encoder™ forgiving to mounting tolerances, mechanical wander etc. The absence of components such as ball bearings, flexible couplers, glass disc, light sources and detectors, along with very low power consumption makes the Electric Encoder virtually failure free. The internally shielded, DC operated Electric Encoder includes an electric field generator, a field receiver, a sinusoidal shaped dielectric rotor, and processing electronics. The output of Electric Encoder is a digital serial with absolute position single turn. The combination of precision, low profile, low weight and high reliability have made Netzer Precision encoders particularly suitable to a wide variety of industrial automation applications.

Despite their perceived simplicity, potentiometers can still be an appropriate option in today’s ever-complicated automation industry. Fundamentally a variable resistor, modern potentiometers also offer more traditional outputs such as voltage and current which are common to more expensive sensors.

Safety, hygiene, and accuracy are critical in food and beverage production and packaging. While sensors can help to achieve the necessary level of accuracy and efficiency, their requirements must extend far beyond the traditional specs of resolution and communication interface. Fortunately, Everight offers a variety of products that meet these needs.
The “Wiegand effect” was discovered almost fifty years ago and has been used successfully in several specialized applications. However, its full potential for energy harvesting and signal generation has received only limited recognition. With recent enhancements to the energy output from Wiegand devices and the emergence of a new generation of ultra-efficient electronic chips for wireless communications, the technology is showing significant promise, especially in the exciting new area of the Internet of Things (IoT). UBITO, a member of the FRABA Group of technology companies, is leading research and development projects aimed at fulfilling this promise.
