Servo control sensor.
The R-Series SSI encoder position sensor is said to feature faster
data processing and more accurate sensing for servo control applications
in the automation industry, providing customers with a high-performance
sensor in a durable industrial package, according to the company. The
design is based on the company's Temposonics magnetostrictive
sensing technology and provides the same absolute serial encoder
interface that is widely used in computer numerically controlled (CNC)
and motion controls in factory automation applications. The SSI output
of the R-Series sensor product is said to be faster, with an optional
data update rate of 250 [micro]-sec, synchronized with an external
control clock, regardless of stroke, with as few as 16 [micro]-sec.
between measurement data clock cycles. Proprietary synchronization
technology is said to guarantee the most accurate position output.
