C50MI and C50MA encoders are the latest additions to the C50 encoder range from Lika Electronic.
C50MI is the new high resolution incremental model and provides Line Driver signals plus additional UVW commutation signals.
C50MA is the new absolute model and offers SSI and BiSS interface plus additional Line Driver output.
From the mechanical point of view, they look exactly the same as the well-known C50 encoder, but inside they are built on totally new electronics and measuring technology.
As the standard version, they are designed in a 52 mm / 2.05 in die-cast aluminum enclosure with through hollow shaft (6, 6.35, 8, 9.52 and 10 mm / 0.24", 1/4", 0.31", 3/8", and 0.39" bore diameters). The housing excels with its small diameter and the low thickness. A variety of standard and custom-made fixing plates allows many installation options.
In addition, they can be mounted on both sides of the encoder to better fit specific applications. The degree of protection is IP65 and the operating temperature ranges between -25°C and +100°C (-13°F ÷ +212°F). The operation temperature range can be extended up to +110°C (+230°F) on request.
C50MI and C50MA are equipped with the latest magnetic sensing technology and provide operational advantages in high-temperature, shock, and vibration environments. C50MI incremental encoder offers TTL/RS-422 Line Driver level AB0 /AB0 signals with additional UVW /UVW commutation signals for brushless motor feedback. The incremental resolution is in the range 1 to 65,536 PPR. UVW signals are available in 1 to 16 pole pairs to fit different BLDC motor requirements.
C50MA absolute encoder can be equipped with SSI and BiSS C-mode serial communication protocols. It can be both singleturn and multiturn. The singleturn resolution ranges between 15 and 19 bits (up to 524,288 cpr); the number of revolutions is 65,536. The encoder also produces additional AB0 /AB0 incremental signals (up to 65,536 PPR, TTL/RS-422 Line Driver signal level) for speed control.
C50MI and C50MA encoders are ideally suited for advanced position and speed control of brushless motors as well as for many and varied industrial automation applications.
