A NEW reflective sensor technology is here!

This reflective technology offers important advantages over the traditional optical transmissive approach. Check it now...

The central component of the BEPC reflective technology architecture is an innovative system-on-chip optical device. This device integrates a blue LED emitter and a sensor into a single package, accompanied by a range of on-chip programmable encoder functions. This cutting-edge reflective technology offers significant benefits over the traditional optical transmissive approach typically employed in encoders: 

  1. Compact Design: our reflective technology enables an exceptionally compact design. Unlike transmissive technology, which necessitates two separate PCB assemblies, this technology requires only a single PCB assembly. This reduction in hardware complexity and space requirements is a notable advantage. 
  2. Signal Clarity and Precision: The inclusion of a blue LED with a short wavelength in the integrated package enhances signal contrast and minimizes jitter. Furthermore, the proximity of the emitter and sensor within the same assembly significantly reduces optical crosstalk. As a result, this technology offers superior resolution, accuracy, and overall performance compared to traditional encoders. 
  3. Versatile Position Detection: Unlike many magnetic encoders that rely on magnets positioned at the end of the encoder shaft to detect position, reflective technology enables off-axis position detection. This versatility allows for a wider range of mounting options, including those suitable for thru-bore style shafts. 

The Model A36RTB (thru-bore) or A36RHB (blind hollow bore) offers a high-performance solution to your absolute feedback needs. Its innovative blue LED and reflective sensor technology deliver accurate high-resolution feedback in a compact thru-bore housing. The XXL multi-turn option adds a low-power turns-counting circuit offering a variety of backup options including BEPC’s embedded battery cable, which has a long-life battery built directly into the controller-end of the cable.
