Experience higher accuracy measurement in harsh environments

Celera Motion announces the expansion of its Zettlex Ultra IncOder™ series of inductive angle encoders with the introduction of the new Mini Ultra and, continued growth of the Midi Ultra. Celera Motion’s Zettlex encoders use a unique, inductive technology that employs the use of printed circuit boards (PCBs). These encoders are non-contact devices which allow precision measurement of angle or angular speed in harsh environments where traditional capacitive and magnetic devices can be unreliable. Each Ultra IncOder unit is pre-calibrated and offers up to 19 arc-seconds accuracy depending on size.

The new Mini Ultra IncOder™ is offering two smaller diameters – sizes 37mm and 58mm. These compact and lightweight products are particularly suited to mobile robotics applications, such as unmanned ground vehicles, which have strict size and weight requirements.

Included in the Ultra IncOder series, the Midi Ultra has expanded to include several new mounting formats as well as a new duplex option for electrical redundancy which is often a requirement in safety-critical applications – notably, surgical robotics.

The Ultra IncOder series brings unique capabilities to complex systems and devices that keep critical functions running, enabling customers to discover new levels of efficiency while creating competitive differentiation.

Key features provide the industry’s most advanced angular measurement capabilities:

  • High accuracy & resolution
  • Stability irrespective of environmental conditions
  • Measurement performance largely independent of installation tolerances
  • Insensitivity to foreign matter
  • Compact size
  • Lightweight
  • Ability to sense over a wide range of geometries
  • No need for bearings, bushes, or seals
  • Can also be used to measure weight, vibration, strain, shock, tilt, pressure and even temperature (by expansion)
  • No service or maintenance needed, they are ‘fit and forget’ devices

Ultra IncOders combined with Celera Motion’s servo drives and direct drive motors, deliver an optimal system solution. The Ultra IncOder connects seamlessly with the Celera Motion servo drives via high-speed BiSS-C interface.
