Patented Technology & Versatile Functionality

FLUX encoders stand out from alternative measuring systems by offering all their best features in one encoder solution: outstanding accuracy, resolution and repeatability delivered from a small package that is easy to install and operates in clean and harsh environments.

Absolute Frameless Encoders:

Less engineering, increased efficiency.

Users of encoder feedback systems have been looking for a technology that combines the hysteresis-free, high-accuracy performance of an optical encoder with the robustness of an inductive encoder and the large mounting tolerance of a magnetic encoder.

By bringing together the most beneficial features of various encoder systems and incorporating them into a single solution, FLUX encoders unlock new possibilities by reducing time and money spent on engineering.

GMI® Technology – Innovation Made in Austria

The GMI® encoder technology, developed by FLUX for position measurement, capitalizes in an exceptional way the interaction between magnetic field and electromagnetic induction.

The Giant Magneto Impedance (GMI®) effect is a phenomenon that relies on the skin effect. It is characterized by material’s significant alteration in impedance when exposed to external magnetic fields. Consequently, a sensor’s position relative to a scale generates a signal. FLUX makes full use of these properties for its innovative GMI® position measurement technology.

Patented GMI® encoders combine the high-precision performance of an optical encoder with the robustness of an inductive encoder and the large mounting tolerance and working range of a magnetic encoder. Furthermore, FLUX Encoder Systems work without hysteresis and provide a real-time position update rate.
