"CUI is honored to receive this recognition from Electronic Products for the latest series to our AMT encoder family," said CUI President Matt McKenzie. "Our AMT encoders are a growing product line with multitude potential applications, and this award further validates the technology behind our proprietary capacitive platform."
The company’s AMT21 and AMT23 series is a rugged, high accuracy absolute encoder outputting 12 bits or 14 bits of absolute position information based on CUI's proprietary capacitive sensing technology. Thanks to its innovative capacitive platform, the series is not susceptible to contaminants from dirt, dust, and oil that typically plague encoders in industrial environments.
The digital nature of these encoders also makes them highly customizable and configurable via CUI's AMT Viewpoint software, said the company. Their compact, simple design further reduces the time-consuming tasks of mounting and alignment to mere seconds, thereby offering significant cost savings during the manufacturing process.
"Delivering innovation is at the heart of everything we do at CUI. Our proprietary capacitive sensing technology is a paradigm shift in the industry as we strive to add value to our customers. This award is a credit to Matt and his team, and I look forward to further success in the future," said CUI Global Chairman and CEO William Clough.
