Avago Technologies (San Jose, CA) has introduced the AEAT-601B compact, integrated, incremental magnetic encoder for speed detection, knob control, and rotary encoder applications. Housed in a protective plastic housing, it provides a resolution of 256 cycles per revolution and angular detection in a complete rotation of 360 degrees. The encoder has three-channel output enabling an index channel for each full rotation. It provides a closed-loop feedback system and is suited for use in systems such as motor and valve control systems, pan and tilt systems for security cameras, and thread winding machines. Features include contactless sensing technology, operating temperature range from -40 to 125 °C, three-channel output, single 5V supply, and direct connectivity through cable output.
