Celera Motion introduces ultra-lightweight inductive angle encoder

11 October 2021

Celera Motion has announced a new device for precise angle measurement: a compact, ultra-lightweight inductive angle encoder, ideal for a variety of surgical, medical and industrial robotics.

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. 
“While IncOder remains the market leader in harsh environment position sensing, IncOder CORE delivers superb performance in an extraordinarily lightweight package,” said Mike Mainvielle, Vice President of Product Management and Marketing for Celera Motion. “Like all IncOder devices, it’s easy to install and uses proven technology that provides worry-free, accurate measurements 24/7.” 
IncOder CORE is well suited for integration into rotary joints. The position sensor utilises a unique field-proven 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’s now offered in a compact 44mm size, with a 10.4mm thru bore and options for customization available. More sizes will be coming soon. 
Features of the IncOder CORE include: 
• Compact, lightweight PCB construction 
• No precision installation tolerances 
• No calibration required 
• An ergonomic hollow bore design 
• Bearingless 
• Absolute position feedback 
• Immune to contamination 
Benefits of the IncOder CORE include: 
• Reduced system weight and design envelope 
• Simple installation 
• Reduced OEM production time and cost 
• Optimized for use in rotary actuators 
• Reliable feedback in demanding applications 
• Robust position measurement 
IncOder CORE has been optimized for integration into host system mechanics. 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.
