Communication Systems & Equipment

Linear Encoder Scale System provides ±5 µm/m accuracy.

Constructed of stainless steel, FASTRACK features track-mounted scale that can run across gaps up to 25 mm wide. This suits large, sectional machines used in flat-panel display and PV manufacturing applications as well as large CMMs that require removal of scale for transit. System consists of 2 miniature guide rails that secure low-profile scales with 8 x 0.2 mm cross-section while allowing them...
