FROM SINGLE ICs to complete solutions
Often, the regulation of a circular motion is related to the registration of the direction and the speed of the rotation. Both can be determined with an optical encoder including LED, encoder disk, mask (reticle) and photodiode (PR5101). Beside photodiodes, amplifiers are also integrated into the chip to generate signals with high resolution, In addition to encoder ICs, also available at PREMA:
- Printed circuit board (PCB)
- encoder disk
Based on request, dimensions and resolution of the encoder disk are adapted. Additional functions are integrated into the receiver chip that afford an easy handling while mounting. Due to its compact dimensions, PR5202 can be utilized in mini-applications.
- automation technology
- household appliance (e.g. bread cutter)
