Magnetic Rotary Encoder Video

I found a little bit of time today to make a video showing the assembly and first test of the magnetic encoder board that I designed.  Check it out!

Magnetic Rotary Encoder PCBs!

Sparkly purple packages in the mail always bring good things from Laen inside.  These are the magnetic encoder eval boards that I designed about a month ago.  As usual, the quality is great.  Unfortunately the timing is not ideal, since it’s crunch time at work, and I probably won’ t have time to build these ...

Magnetic Rotary Encoder Eval 6

I got some samples of the nifty looking AS5040 10-bit magnetic rotary encoder IC from Austria Microsystems.  I want to do some experiments with these chips to possibly replace the mechanically coupled encoder I was planning to use to measure the spindle speed on my CNC mill.  The chips basically have Hall Effect sensors and ...
