Designing an Efficient and Low-Noise Power Supply for Sensors and Encoders


Smart, accurate sensors and encoders are bringingnew levels of intelligence to automated industrialequipment. Indeed, the smart factory is being realizedacross a variety of manufacturing landscapes,enhancing productivity and efficiency. Enabling thesecompact sensors and encoders to perform reliablyrequires a high level of power efficiency. This paperdiscusses why conventional power managementsolutions aren’t adequate for these types ofapplications and highlights newer technology that isup to the challenges.
