Linear encoders

Article-Linear encoders

New LS XX7 Series sealed linear encoders are available up to 3 m in length, come in two different mechanical profiles and resist contamination and vibration, making them useful in dynamic machine tool applications. The new single-field scanning technology provides encoder advantages regarding the tolerance to contamination and to electromagnetic noise sources, the co. says. Along with signal stability, single-field scanning can also improve signal quality, providing a typical output signal error of ±1 percent within one signal period, the co. states.
