Bearingless Encoders with Commutation

January 25, 2021 by Quantum Devices

Register below to learn how to capitalize on the features of common bearingless encoders with commutation in your design.

 

Whitepaper Overview

As encoders with built-in commutation functionality are becoming more and more common, there has been a push to shrink the package size. 

Having commutation included in the encoder has several benefits, including:

  • Reducing hard motor costs by removing the hall boards and reducing the magnet volume from the motor
  • Decreasing the motor fabrication time
  • Reducing the number of cables/conductors mating the motor assembly to the drive

With bearingless commutating encoders, there are still a wide variety of specifications to consider, including: sensing technology, permissible operating environment, electrical interfacing as well as mechanical packaging.
