The AMT303LD series is the latest addition to CUI’s high resolution, low-cost AMT encoder line. The encoder generates standard U/V/W commutation signals for vectoring current to brushless motors. Resolution can be set through the AMT303 Demo Kit. Commutation output can accommodate brushless motors with 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 or 20 pole pairs, and is also selectable via the AMT303LD Demo Board. The AMT303LD offers complimentary incremental A/A, B/B, and Z/Z channels for various servo positioning and startup sequences. Additional options include nine mounting patterns and ten bore sizes, creating a flexible platform that is able to accommodate many industry standard motors.
