New Products Roundup from MicroE Systems

The last 12 months saw an exceptional number of innovative new position encoders from MicroE Systems, enabling OEM’s to achieve new levels of performance, compact size, more efficient manufacturing and even portability. New optical encoders are giving OEM’s these capabilities:

• Nanometer-level resolution in the smallest possible sensor
• Excellent short-range accuracy
• Nanometer-level resolution in high vacuum
• Tape scale that installs in one step, including index and limits
• Very cost-effective 0.5µm resolution optical encoders
• High speed with sub-micron / nanometer-level resolution
• Traceability per ISO 13485 for medical applications

New encoders introduced by MicroE Systems in 2011 and 2012 have all of these capabilities.
