CUI's VP of Motion Control, Jeff Smoot, to Present at Motor and Drive Systems 2015

CUI’s VP of Motion Control, Jeff Smoot, will be presenting at the upcoming Motor and Drive Systems 2015 conference held January 21-22 in Orlando, Florida. The conference is focused on the latest technical advancements impacting the design and integration of motor, drive systems and motion control for manufacturing, industrial and packaging. Jeff Smoot’s presentation titled, “Bringing Intelligence to Encoders”, will cover how CUI’s innovative rotary encoders deliver programmability, durability and precision without tradeoffs.

Rotary encoders provide critical information about the position of motor shafts and thus also their rotational direction, velocity and acceleration. In these installations, encoders are asked to provide long-term reliability, durability and high performance despite often working in severe conditions. While the need for encoders has been increasing dramatically with the rise of applications requiring precise motion control, current encoders on the market fall short in being able to provide any intelligence to the motion control designer. New technology can bridge this gap, providing the designer with valuable diagnostic and programming capabilities that can speed time to market, drastically cut assembly costs and reduce machine downtime in the field.

The 12th annual Motor and Drive Systems 2015 conference provides one of the top forums to learn from leading motor and drive system manufacturers on how new technologies are improving performance, energy efficiency and providing cost savings in a variety of applications.
