CUI's AMT21 and AMT23 encoder series output 12 bits or 14 bits of single-turn or multi-turn absolute position information and are based on CUI's proprietary capacitive sensing technology. This capacitive platform offers a highly durable and accurate position feedback solution that is resilient to dirt, dust, and oil that typically plagues encoders in motion applications. The digital nature of these absolute encoders also makes them highly customizable and configurable via CUI's AMT Viewpoint™ software, while 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.

"CUI is honored to receive this recognition from Electronic Products for the latest series to our AMT encoder family," stated 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."

Added CUI Global Chairman and CEO William Clough, "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."
