TruCount™ Absolute Encoder Technology
TruCount™ Absolute Encoders provide the ultimate in hassle-free positioning of rotary and linear axes. They are multi-turn, absolute encoders that don’t require batteries or external power to track encoder position while the motor is powered off. There are no mechanical gears inside.
The encoders make use of a novel energy harvesting technique that continues to track motor position when the motor is powered off for any amount of time. Any amount of displacement in the shaft causes enough energy to be created for the motor to continue tracking its absolute position. It is an extremely effective approach to multi-turn, absolute position tracking.
StepSERVO™ Integrated Motors w/ TruCount™ Absolute Encoders
StepSERVO technology combines the high torque capabilities of a step motor with the closed-loop dynamic control of a servo system. The result is a highly configurable, all-in-one motion control solution that operates quietly and efficiently, requiring only the minimum amount of current to maintain commanded position and velocity. Boost torque that is higher than the rated holding torque increases the limits of acceleration, leading to faster cycle times.
StepSERVO Integrated Motors can be applied in systems where a traditional stepper motor would not be capable of achieving the high accuracy required. Utilizing them along with TruCount Absolute Encoders will reduce downtime by shortening machine power-up sequences and eliminate the need for homing runs after power cycles and emergency stops (e-stops).
