Linear encoder in profile housing can be mounted into machines or apparatus. One type has integrated magnet guidance capability, the others are flat without guidance. Those can be integrated flush mount into surfaces and thus have no gaps or edges where chips or shavings might stick.
All systems are available with multi magnet detection. That means that position of several Magnets on a single encoder can be detected in one measurement cycle.
With cascadable linear absolute encoders in profile housing, measurement ranges of up to 20 m can be detected – e.g. positioning of cutting rollers or as wear free replacement for string pods in vertical axis in storage and retrieval systems.
All linear systems in profile housings
Profiles with guided magnets
Profiles without magnet guidances
Profiles are flat. Relative position between magnet and sensor is maintained by guidance chosen and setup by customer
Be it short or long: Easily assembled. LMC 55 linear encoder: no wear, up to 20 m absolute position detection.
