) recently introduced the AEDR-87xx series of 3-channel reflective
optical encoder devices. The series currently includes the
AEDR-8710 for $15 and AEDR-8723 for $22 each for quantities of
The reflective optical encoders are specialized for use in low
power miniaturized motion control systems. The encoders feature low
supply voltage option, dual analog/digital output options and high
encoding resolution. The AEDR-871x encoder features dual channel
digital outputs and the AEDR-872x features dual channel analog
outputs. The new series of reflective optical encoder devices are
packaged in the industry's smallest form factor. The small size
allows the encoders to be used in a wide range of miniature
commercial and industrial applications where size and space issues
These optical solutions provide greater flexibility and easier
integration into existing control systems. They are a perfect fit
to addresses challenges for modern miniaturized motion control
systems and are ideal for stepper motors, electrical actuators,
piezoelectric drives and portable medical appliances.
