Sterilizable Encoders and BLDC Motors Drive Surgical Hand Tool Advances

 

 As handheld surgical tools gain wider adoption, there’s a growing demand for smaller, lightweight devices that can offer more capability and precise motion profiles. When it comes to brushless DC motors (BLDC) commonly used in handheld surgical tools, magnetic encoders provide the high-resolution feedback that makes high-performance drive systems possible, and they offer many benefits. However, not all encoder/feedback technologies are the same.  Here are some situations that call for an encoder as part of a drive system:
