Toshiba Debuts 15nm e-MMC NAND Flash Memory for Automotive Applications at CES
BEDFORD, Mass.—Celera Motion recently announced that it has introduced the new Veratus™ precision optical encoder series from MicroE, designed for ease of installation and robust performance in a wide range of advanced industrial, medical, microelectronics, and scientific applications. The automatic calibration feature of Veratus is said to make it easy for OEMs to get their system up and running quickly without any complicated set-up procedures, tools, or additional electronic components.
Veratus, the first MicroE encoder built using the company’s new VeraPath™ optical technology, delivers the reliability, signal stability, and dirt immunity required in many applications, according to a release from Celera Motion. VeraPath technology is designed to filter out signal disturbances caused by scratches, debris, or contamination and is said to effectively eliminate accuracy errors resulting from flatness variations typical with metal scales. The results enable users to achieve high levels of accuracy with both metal tape and glass scales, making Veratus well-suited for long and short travel linear axes and for rotary axes, the company says.
Because all interpolation, automatic gain control, and signal processing is performed in the sensor head, no additional special adaptors are required. Veratus is capable of resolutions down to 20 nanometers and is the smallest encoder system in its class, with a sensor body that is only 35 x 13.5 x 10mm (1.38 x 0.53 x 0.39 inches), according to the manufacturer.
The contamination resistance of VeraPath technology, combined with its compact size and ease of set-up, as well as its availability with both digital and industry-standard 1 Vpp analog output, make Veratus suitable for a variety of applications, including precision linear and rotary positioning stages, coordinate measuring machines, optical scanning and inspection, medical robotics, laboratory and pharmacy automation, printed circuit board assembly and electronics packaging, and industrial robotics.
