Live From SPIE DSS 2012: Canon Sensors, Encoders, And Scanners For Various Applications

Source: Canon USA, Inc. Optoelectronic Components

Ron Travis, sales manager at Canon U.S.A., tells us about their SR Series of ultra-miniature optical encoders, laser rotary encoders, laser doppler velocity sensors, and galvano scanners. These products are used in a wide variety of applications such as motion and speed control, robotics, manufacturing equipment, and more.

Ron Travis: Hello, my name is Ron Travis. I would like to welcome you to our Canon booth. I would like to show you a couple of different things that we have. We have rotary and linear encoders starting over here at 1,000 pulses per revolution all the way up to 81,000 pulses per revolution.

We also have linear encoders as well with varying degrees of resolution. There are various scales all the way up to 18 inches. We have a non-contact velocity sensor which measures velocity in both directions - both in a plus and minus direction. It can go as high as 120 meters per minute down to -12 meters per minute.

We have a counting device as well, which goes onto our SR Series. We have laser steering devices. Our GM-1000 Series devices can handle a variety of mirrors and situations x, y, and z axis. The driver for the GM-1015 and GM-1020 series. We have a variety of other things as well. Thank you.
