Precise robot control just got easier. The VersaPlanetary Integrated Encoder is the simplest way to gain control over your mechanisms with encoder feedback straight from the popular VersaPlanetary gearbox. The included CTR Electronics SRX Magnetic Encoder outputs both relative (quadrature) and absolute (PWM) position signals, and connects directly to the Talon SRX without the need for a custom interface!
The Cross the Road Electronics SRX Mag Encoder is a rotary sensor that can be used to measure rotational position and velocity. The device senses the magnetic field of a diametrically polarized magnet to determine rotational position with 12 bit precision. The device provides both a Quadrature interface that may be used for relative position measurement and a Pulse Width Modulated output for absolute position measurement. The device connects directly to the Talon SRX data port and is directly supported in the Talon SRX firmware.
This breakout board makes wiring 5V analog sensors to the Talon SRX quick and easy. When connected to the Talon SRX through a ribbon cable, the breakout board provides solder pads to help connect your necessary sensors. This breakout board is designed specifically for use with the Talon SRX - it scales a native 5V analog signal to a Talon SRX compliant 3.3V, helping 5V magnetic shaft encoders to "just work" without additional circuitry.
217-4358This 12" long cable contains female 2x5 pin data connections on either end to help facilitate Talon SRX external inputs. It can be used to connect the Talon SRX to feedback devices such as potentiometers, limit switches, analog & quadrature encoders as well as providing other future expansion options beyond what is currently supported.
The Hex Bore Mag Encoder Housing allows users to mount any SRX Mag Encoder or CAN Mag Encoder directly to a 1/2" Hex Shaft, no modifications required.
The Hex Bore Mag Encoder Housing is also designed to mount directly to any VersaBlock, making it even easier to mount encoders directly to any shaft!
For those looking for a lower profile solution, the Hex Bore Mag Encoder Housing will fit inside any VEX VersaFrame tubing, allowing you to package your mechanisms in an even smaller footprint.
