Compact Precision Encoders for High Vacuum Applications
Mercury II™ Series
Mercury II™ digital output high-vacuum rated encoders offer class-leading resolution, accuracy, and small sensor size. With MicroE’s broad alignment tolerances, no other commercially available 10-8 Torr rated encoder is easier to align, easier to use, or easier to integrate into your designs.

- The MII 6000V sensor is vented and constructed with vacuum compatible materials and designed for a 48 hour bake out at 150°C.
- Mercury II’s encoder technology achieves the highest resolution and accuracy in its class, with low cyclical error, low jitter, smaller sensors, and lower power consumption.
- Broadest Alignment Tolerances: With the broadest alignment tolerances in the industry, a full +/-2 degrees, Mercury II is the easiest and the fastest sensor to align and setup. You can align the Mercury II sensor in under 30 seconds.
