Wire-draw encoders

The new BKS wire-draw encoder system is a compact wire-draw measurement system that includes an integrated absolute encoder to minimize its size. The system is designed to provide high-resolution (up to 0.05 mm) position or distance information for linear measurement paths up to 5 m at speeds up to 3.5 m/sec, even under difficult mounting positions. The BKS wire-draw encoders are available with SSI or HIPERFACE interfaces and a Profibus interface via an optional HIPERFACE Profibus adapter.
