Part no.: Netzer VLP-100 Series
• 100mm diameter
• SSI, BiSS-C
• Up to 20 bits resolution
• High tolerance to EMI, RFI and magnetic fields
Netzer VLP encoders are ideal for OEM applications. Featuring an open frame, 2 plate design, the sensor is lightweight, highly tolerant to temperature, shock, EMI, RFI and magnetic fields. Iit offers a unique combination of high performance at an economical cost.
SSI hardware is fairly simple. Just use any RS-422 transceiver to generate the differential signals from/to the microcontroller port pins. Keep reading to learn about the different implementations of SSI hardware.
Rotary encoders are used in a variety of applications to provide feedback on position, speed, direction, or angle. There are several different encoder types…
In this example, the switch point has been set to ‘Full Alarm’. By setting the switch point to 90% with an 80% hysteresis, the switch will come on at 90% and switch off at 10%.
As collaborative robots expand into manufacturing environments the issue of safe motion continues to be a concern. Current design approaches involve adding force sensors, torque sensors, and sometimes proximity sensors. These adders along with more complex software control algorithms mitigate most of the concerns and result in slower operation. Unfortunately, these additional sensors also add significant cost and complexity.
