TUALATIN, OR – CUI Inc announced that it has launched a new version of amtencoder.com, a website dedicated to their proprietary AMT modular encoder series. The site now features detailed product pages, a resource area with technical documents, videos, frequently asked questions, a news section, and an inventor’s bio. CUI’s VP of Marketing Jeff Schnabel commented, “Users of the new amtencoder.com can expect to find a wealth of resources on this exciting technology and the products that utilize it.”
The AMT encoder has been designed with proprietary, capacitive, code-generating technology that represents a breakthrough in cost vs. resolution. Capacitive technology holds numerous advantages over the optical technology typically used in today’s modular encoders. The AMT’s design allows users to select from a range of resolutions via an on-board dip switch, creating flexibility for companies utilizing multiple encoders in their applications. Additionally, common problems associated with optical encoders, including fragility of the optical disk, LED burn-out, limited temperature range, and high current consumption are eliminated by capacitive technology.
The AMT is available immediately through Digi-Key starting at $29.95 for 1 piece. Contact CUI directly for OEM quantities.
