Encoder provides dual- and single-axis capability.

Laser Model RLE interferometer-based encoder uses fiber optic links to transport laser beam directly to axis measuring position. Optical beam-steerer reduces laser alignment to simple bolt-down and dial-in process. Using retroreflectors or plane mirrors, system can be applied to axis lengths up to 4 m. It allows outputs in digital RS422 format quadrature, with resolutions from 10-633 nm, or 1 Vpp...

Linear Encoders

Linear Encoder has no speed/resolution tradeoff.

Non-contact Linear Electric Encoder provides absolute position output with resolution of 10 nm and accuracy to less than 10 Â-µm. It uses electrically excited patterned scale and read head that responds to electric field flux generated by scale regardless of speed. Encoder is suitable for automation, robotics, machine tools, automotive, office automation, and aerospace applications. Scale is...

Linear Encoders

Encoder are for glass scale applications.

RG40 linear encoder system combines precision of non-contact, contamination-tolerant optical RG readheads with accuracy and thermal behavior of glass scales. In lengths of 300, 500, 750 and 1000mm, glass scales use clip mounts to expand with thermal change for wide range of materials. Encoder system is for use by makers of precision stages, linear motor stages, pick & place equipment, and other...
