Newbury Park, CA – Micronor’s MR318 fiber optic rotary encoder is designed specifically for use as feedback in motion control systems operating in extreme electromagnetic fields. The sensor's passive optical design and non-metallic construction has no affect on MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) or NMR (nuclear magnetic resonance) system operation or measurements. The multiturn encoder system offers 360ppr (1°) resolution and measures both angular position and shaft speed. MRI-related applications include feedback for actuator or motor control, monitoring patient position or correlating foot pedal position for fMRI diagnostics.
The MR318 rotary sensor uses an industry-standard Size 58mm synchro housing and is installed just like a standard encoder. The sensor then optically connects to the MR310 module via a multimode fiber optic link. The module operates from 15-32 VDC and offers a range of standard interface options, including: A/B quadrature outputs (push-pull and line driver), programmable analog outputs (4-20mA and ±10V) and RS422/RS485 serial interface.
Unit price for either MR318 encoder or MR310 module is $1995 in small quantities – with OEM and educational discounts available. Lead time is 2 weeks ARO.
