RAMK060 - Position Sensor with High Resolution and High Precision
Vishay Intertechnology has launched RAMK060, a robust and high precision position sensor that offers better resolution and accuracy for industrial robotics and other demanding applications. The new rotational absolute magnetic kit encoder uses advanced contactless technology to achieve >13-bit accuracy, 19-bit resolution and >16-bit repeatability and also maintains robustness against external magnetic fields, moisture, airborne pollution, vibration, mechanical shock and change in temperature.
The rotor + stator kit design of the sensor along with its axis design has a slim profile of 6.5mm (approx) and a light weight (<55g) which is ideal for applications where little space is available but an angular position needs to be detected with high accuracy. The RAMK060 has an outer diameter of 60mm and the inner diameter of 25mm with the availability of several multi turn variants including connections to a battery backup when the system power is off. RAMK060 is more advantageous because of self calibration to compensate for mechanical misalignment, built in self monitoring and memorization of the last absolute position before power off.
