Lin Engineering Partners with CUI to Release a Highly Efficient and Reliable Stepper Motor and Encoder Combo

19 JANUARY 2017

CUI077_Lin_Engineering-printCUI Inc announced a partnership with Lin Engineering, a leading manufacturer of stepper motors, to integrate CUI’s innovative AMT encoder technology with Lin’s latest, high performance motor series.

Lin Engineering’s G3718V series is a NEMA 17 sized motor with a length of 0.90 inches (22.86 mm) that can produce up to 50% more torque than motors of a similar size. Thanks to its design, the G3718V also features improved passive cooling, increasing overall efficiency and lowering operating costs.

With a step angle of 1.8°, the G3718V offers smooth motion and high accuracy similar to a 0.9° motor. The series also provides up to 25 oz-in (0.18 N-m) of holding torque. Various shaft options are available and windings can be customized to ensure maximum torque at desired operating speeds.

Integrating with Lin Engineering’s top-of-line stepper motor will be CUI’s innovative AMT encoder technology. CUI’s AMT series is a range of rugged, high accuracy modular encoders available in incremental, absolute and commutation versions. Thanks to its innovative design, the AMT series is not susceptible to contaminants such as dirt, dust and oil that typically plague encoders in industrial environments.

Due to the digital nature of the encoder design, the AMT series also comes with a number of programmable features, including resolutions up to 4096 PPR, zero position, line drivers, and in the case of the absolute version, a 12-bit absolute output. Combined with an operating temperature from -40 up to +125°C, high accuracy, simple assembly and low current draw, the AMT provides a compelling solution for a range of applications.
