R-Series SSI encoder position sensors offer fast data processing and accurate sensing for servo control applications. They use a Temposonics magnetostrictive transducer and provide same absolute serial encoder interface as in CNCs and motion controls. They offer position sensing to 1 µm and resolution of 1 to 100 µm. SSI output has optional data update rate of 250 µsec synchronized with external clock, regardless of stroke, with as few as 16 µsec between measurement data clock cycles. Measurement non-linearity correction improves sensing accuracy to as low ±10 µm.
