- Multiplication to x2000
- High-speed 32 MHz output clock rate
- Compact, with standard D-type connectors
- Compatible with linear and rotary encoders with amplified sine-wave output
- Custom multiplication factors available
Aerotech's MXH series multipliers are the ideal solution for high-resolution system requirements. The MXH series utilizes high-performance interpolation electronics to increase resolution by up to x2000.
The MXH model offers multiplication factors up to x2000. A linear encoder with a 4 µm grating period can have resolution as fine as 2 nm.
Unlike most multiplication devices, the MXH doesn't sacrifice speed. A 32 MHz clock assures high speed and high resolution. For example, with a resolution as fine as 8 nm, speeds of over 250 mm/s are achievable.
Aerotech's Dedication to the Science of Motion is reflected in some of the unique features of the MXH series. Not only does the MXH boast industry-leading data rates, but for atypical resolution requirements, Aerotech can create custom multiplication factors. This level of flexibility is unmatched by the competition and is a result of our years of experience in the high-accuracy positioning market.
The MXH interface utilizes standard 25-pin D-type connectors, eliminating the need for expensive and hard to find connectors. Limit switch and Hall-effect signals pass through the MXH, resulting in a more efficient cabling scheme.

Note: MXH multipliers are available in -A and -B versions as factory supplied configurations. Multiplication selections are possible in 0.25 increments up to MXH256, which multiplies into an integer after x4 (i.e. 0.25 or 0.5, 1.25, 33, etc. Unacceptable values are 1.7, 2.4, etc.). From MXH256 to MXH512, multiplication selections are possible in x1.0 increments.
