Paper Abstract

At National Institute of Metrology, China (NIM), a portable and real-time self-calibration angle encoder was developed to meet the requirement of angular measurement with high accuracy, high speed, and high adaptability in limited size. In the development, the special arrangement of reading heads, the structure of bearing was designed base on the novel selfcalibration method, and the corresponding signal acquisition and processing system was set up with capability of high speed and multi-channel synchronous data acquisition and processing. The max rotary speed of this angle encoder gets 18 r/min (110°/s) in real-time mode. This angle encoder was compared with NIM’s primary angle standard. The calibration result shows that this angle encoder has angle measuring accuracy better than ±4″.
