maxon release the smallest incremental encoder on the market
With a size of only 4mm and suitable for medical robots, maxon release the ENX 4 magnetic incremental encoder.
In May 2020 maxon is once again expanding its range of configurable DC motors, gearboxes and encoders. The ENX 4 MAG incremental encoder measures only 4mm and in this size class is a first on the market. The encoder expands the ways the DC motor system can be used, for example in surgical robots. This is configurable with a resolution of 1 to 256 cpt and can be programmed at maxon’s manufacturing facility. MAG stands for magnetic and this version uses the same magnetic principles as it’s slightly larger MAG 6mm and MAG 8mm versions. maxon motor Australia engineers can assist to configure this encoder with the ECX SPEED DC motors with hall sensors. With the addition of the encoder, the length of the DC motor is only lengthened by 2.7mm making it suitable for applications where space is at a premium. The motor lines are integrated in the same flexible cable which is 50mm long and exits the housing axially on the side but can be also routed radially.
