Linear encoders

From linear absolute measuring systems through to laser distance measurement

TR-Electronic linear encoders acquire linear movements in machines, tools and installations according to your specific requirements with different technologies.

Linear absolute position measuring systems and position sensors (magnetostriction) measure linear movements e.g. in injection molding machines without contact and wear-free, or are integrated directly into hydraulic cylinders. Cascadable position sensors position parting units. High-resolution absolute position measuring systems with a glass scale ensure precise positioning on machine tools. And laser sensors based on phase difference measuring techniques position aisle stackers in the desired position extremely precisely in warehousing and materials handling technology.

With TR-Electronic linear rotary encoders you can measure paths virtually wear-free and precisely move your machines and installations to the desired position. As a result you will increase the availability of your installations and guarantee efficient production processes. You will prevent expensive production downtimes and prolong the lifetime of your machines.
