|Linear Magnetic Encoders |
The Renishaw linear encoder range is based on the magnetoresistive sensing principle. The readhead detects the magnetic signature of the magnetized scale as it moves over it. The analogue signals are then processed to produce a range of digital resolutions to 1 μm. The system is suitable for linear and partial arc applications.
Why Linear Magnetic?
- High speed operation
- Excellent dirt immunity to IP68
- Stick-on reference mark
- Integral set-up LED
- Axis lengths of up to 100 m
- Selectable resolution from 250μm to 1μm
- Industry standard digital and analogue output options
