US Digital Introduces New Addition to Miniature Optical Encoder Portfolio at ATX West 2017

Anaheim, California - February 8, 2017 - US Digital, a US manufacturer of quality motion control since 1980, today announced the introduction of the E8T miniature optical encoder. Combining small form factor and resolutions up to 720 CPR, the E8T is ideally suited for medical and other space sensitive applications that require reliable position and velocity feedback. The E8T's small package footprint fits motors as small as National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) size 11 with more than 40% reduction in package height compared to other commercially available solutions.

Utilizing US Digital's proprietary OPTO-ASIC technology, the newly announced E8T supports up to 2,880 pulses per revolution with excellent repeatability. The E8T is available in over 3,240 different configurations and features either single-ended or differential signal outputs. Moreover, the E8T features a simple and secure, push-on hub disk design and a high-retention connector for quick, easy and reliable installation that keeps assembly cost and complexity to a minimum.

  • 9 resolutions up to 720 CPR
  • 3,240 configurations available, including single and differential output
  • Compact, low profile form factor
  •   1.120 inch (in) / 28.45 millimeter (mm) package outside diameter
  •   0.460 in / 11.68 mm package height

"Whether its portable technology or diagnostic equipment destined for the laboratory floor, today's medical applications face increasing pressure to become smaller and lighter without compromising functionality," said Donna Peterson, Vice President of Marketing and Sales at US Digital. "The E8T's small, low profile package and available resolutions make it uniquely positioned to help address these requirements while delivering excellent value and reliability relative to alternative motion control solutions."
