Celera Motion debuts ultra-lightweight inductive angle encoder

06 October 2021

Celera Motion has launched a compact, ultra-lightweight inductive angle encoder as an innovative new device for precise angle measurement in surgical, medical and industrial robotics applications.

IncOder CORE is a non-contact device featuring the robust and reliable position sensing technology of IncOder — all fully contained in a stacked printed circuit board (PCB) kit that reduces OEM system mass.

The encoder is well suited for integration into rotary joints. The position sensor utilizes a unique field-Source: Celera MotionSource: Celera Motionproven inductive technique, delivering highly repeatable, reliable, temperature-stable performance.

IncOder CORE is designed primarily for segments including surgical robotics, medical robotics, rotary actuators and industrial robotic systems. It is now offered in a compact 44 mm size, with a 10.4 mm thru bore and options for customization available. More sizes will be coming soon.

Each sensor includes a passive rotor target paired with an active stator — both featuring a large thru bore and practical M2 screw mounting features.

IncOder CORE can be configured to output up to 17 bits of absolute digital position data in a range of digital protocol options, including BiSS-C, SSI, SPI and Asynchronous Serial (ASI) outputs. It can be supplied with axial or radial connector options.
