ATOM™ encoder series

What is the ATOM encoder?
The ATOM series is Renishaw’s miniature non-contact optical incremental encoder system suitable for linear and rotary applications. Its innovative design combines miniaturisation with leading-edge signal stability, dirt immunity and reliability. This represents a significant advance in the performance and reliability of miniature encoders. This encoder is also the fastest in its class, with maximum speeds up to 20 m/s.

ATOM systems are simple to install with integrated LED for signal integrity indication.

A range of high-speed interpolator solutions is available, including the Ri interface, the high-performance Ti interface and the compact PCB-style ACi interface, offering digital output with resolutions down to 1 nm.

Miniature analogue encoder
ATOM is a miniature fully featured analogue encoder for space constrained applications. External interpolator interfaces are available with resolutions down to 1 nm.

Flexible printed circuit (FPC) readhead variant
The ATOM readhead is also available as a flexible printed circuit (FPC) variant with a reduced Z-height which helps to reduce the overall package size. The FPC output also gives customers the freedom to design their own cabling for easy routing.

Reliable position measurement
Due to Renishaw's unique filtering optics design, ATOM encoders offer reliable position measurement through excellent signal stability and dirt immunity.
