Guided Incremental Linear Measuring Encoders

Measuring Scale

Our guided measuring encoders have the scale integrated into a guide rail. The rails can be supplied in lengths up to 3 m or as multi-piece rails for longer lengths. Optional higher accuracy classes are available.

Scanning heads

The scanning heads have a high degree of protection and immunity to contamination due to their IP 67 rating .

Outputs are available with 1 Vpp sine wave signal periods of down to 20 μm, or TTL (RS 422) square wave output with resolutions down to 0,125 microns.

The scanning head can be attached with a flexure to allow higher assembly tolerances, such as occur in long-distance measuring.

Typical Applications

  • Direct Drive Linear Motors
  • Sheet Metal Working Machines
  • Large Milling Machines
