The module series features a built-in interpolator supporting a wide range of encoding resolution from 1,000 to 5,000 counts per revolution (CPR) using a code-wheel of 11mm optical radius. The devices are industrial grade with operating temperature from -40 to +115 °C.
Compared to competitive solutions on the market, the AEDT-981x is claimed to operate with a 70% lower supply current minimizing encoder power consumption (20mA typical ICC). It has a wide spatial play tolerance of 0.4mm and code-wheel gap tuning range of +/-0.15 mm, providing ease of motor shaft alignment and enhancing photo detector signal integrity.
The 26.67x20.8x10.16mm encoder is available in a standalone module unit like the AEDT-981x or in three pre-assembled housed module kits. The AEDM-5xxx is a kit with patented snap on cover, the AEDC-5xxx is a kit with connector latch, and the AEDL-5xxx is a kit with integrated differential line driver IC supporting RS-422 outputs.
