Capacitive encoders are available for SureStep standalone dual-shaft motors and SureStep standard integrated motor/drives in all NEMA 14, 17, 23, and 34 sizes. These incremental models offer line driver and push-pull output signals configurable up to 4096 ppr, with software configurable and DIP-switch configurable models.
Stepper Modular (Kit) Encoders
AMT series encoders from CUI Devices are advanced capacitive encoders with a variety of uses. AMT series encoders are typically mounted to the back of a stepper motor but can be used in many other applications. CUI offers the AMT series encoders with configurable pulses per revolution (PPR). The PPR can be set for most models using the free AMT Viewpoint software. The AMT10 family of encoders are configured using DIP switches. All AMT incremental encoders have quadrature output signals and are available in single-ended (totem-pole) and line driver output models.

Note: AMT incremental encoders have a quadrature output. So, 4096ppr results in 4 x 4096 = 16,384 resolution for a PLC.
