Automatic Position Correction – including eccentricity error!

Get to know the new iC-TW29: iC-Haus from Germany presents high-resolution FlexCount® interpolator with automatic signal correction and BiSS Interface. What are its key benefits?

The new 26-bit encoder signal processor is used for the evaluation of magnetic and optical sensors that generate sine and cosine signals. Just a push of a button is enough to set the required signal amplification and to correct signal errors. A permanent auto-correction minimizes the angular error, so that the integrated RS422 output drivers provide optimal quadrature signals – with up to 262,144 pulses at processing times of either only 2.4 µs or 5 µs.

A remarkable innovation is the position correction for the mechanical eccentricity error. It solves the annoying problem caused by off-center optical graduations or magnetic pole wheels. The measuring accuracy can now be considerably improved, especially for the smallest incremental encoders, as well as for absolute encoders, that use multiturn information in addition.
