    Medical Robotics

    Medical robotics has the potential to significantly improve the quality of healthcare, enhance patient outcomes, and reduce healthcare costs. However, development engineers are facing challenges when it comes to safety, reliability and cost-efficiency during the engineering phase. Our encoder solutions provide customized solutions that offer high accuracy, reliability and increased safety to ensure operation in even the most challenging applications.


    Due to their excellent position and speed control, easy installation features as well as a weight-reduced and flat profile for both, rotor and stator, the FLUX Encoder Systems are an ideal choice for use in UAVs.

  • Videography and Gimbals Videography and Gimbals

    Videography and Gimbals

    Gimbals are commonly used in photography and videography to stabilize cameras and other imaging equipment, allowing for smooth and steady footage even when the camera is moving or shaking. Enabling maximum accuracy performance within arcseconds, FLUX GMI® Angle and GMI® Rotary Encoders are designed for applications that need precise measurements but in conditions where high shocks and vibrations are common.

    Our encoders perform where others fail.

    FLUX encoders differ from conventional measuring principles by delivering the best of all worlds in one encoder. Outstanding performance in harsh environments, excellent precision, and small and narrow where conventional encoders are too large and heavy.

    The GMI® technology, developed and patented by FLUX for position measurement, capitalizes in an exceptional way the interaction between magnetic field and electromagnetic induction. It combines the hysteresis-free performance of an optical encoder with the robustness of an inductive encoder and the large mounting tolerance and working range of a magnetic encoder.
