by Eric Rice

Applied Motion Products, Inc. is pleased to announce the introduction of a new encoder feedback option for NEMA 17, 23, and 24 frame stepper motors. These new incremental encoders are built upon a technology that utilizes capacitive reactance to generate digital signals for speed and position feedback in the motor and drive system. Capacitive encoders offer advantages over other encoder types, including resistance to environmental contaminants such as dust and oil. Modular capacitive encoders also have thin profiles and are competitively priced.

by Eric Rice

To accommodate customers' requests, we have created a new add-on connector module for TSM11 integrated motors that breaks out the communication terminals into two connectors that are separate from the power and I/O connector. These separate communication connectors make for much easier daisy-chain connections on RS-485 and Modbus RTU networks.
