Portable and Affordable Sensors for the Medical Device Market
This article discusses reflective encoder technology and motion sensing. It will compare reflective encoders to incumbent magnetic encoder solutions. Examples where reflective encoder solutions have revealed improved results will also be discussed. Ultimately, this article provides a better understanding on why reflective encoders positively answer device designer questions about electromagnetic interference, form factors and precision—and at the same time ensuring the encoder remains small, cost effective and easy to design with in medical applications and environments.
