Renco Encoders introduces a 3.3 Volt feature for the RCML15. The RCML15 is compact optical encoder that provides signals for brushless motor commutation as well as incremental position feedback in a low profile (0.350 inches height) optical encoder.
According to the companys press release, a custom LED and CMOS sensor arrangement improves performance and reliability of the encoder package. Encoder frequency response can reach 500 KHz. Supply voltage is +3.3 VDC +/- 10% Max Ripple, 40mv pk-pk.
The RCML15 features RENCOs patented slide/gap mechanism for ease of installation and maximum performance, and +/- 20 degree rotation of the encoder to align the commutation signals with the motor poles.
The RCML15 is available in a wide selection of resolutions up to 4096 and provides commutation for 4, 6, 8 and 10 pole brushless motors. The RCML15 meets all requirements in NEMAs ICS-16 standard.
