Not Small, It Is Super Mini

Overseas Landing: Formerly available only in Japan, Nidec Nemicon rotary encoders are now in the U.S., and are customizable.

After years of success in Japan, rotary encoders from Nidec Nemicon Corp. (www.nemicon.com) are now available in the U.S. Consisting of more than 2,000 rotary encoders of different sizes, the Nemicon line specializes in super miniature encoders that start at 0.472-inch (12 mm) diameter, which is 15 percent smaller than other Nemicon models, with 50-125 mum resolution. The company hopes that customization-no matter how small the order-will provide a solid landing in the U.S. market, says General Manager Hiroshi Kaneko. The complete line of Nemicon encoders include shaft, hollow shaft, modular, kits, absolute, and manual for various applications, and the models go up to 3.93-inch (100 mm) diameter.
