Linear and rotary drives
Linear and rotary drives

Compact, high-precision technology

Integrated sensor system solutions are indispensable for the most compact drive possible. BML magnetic encoders, which are available in incomparably small form factors, are suited for direct integration into both linear and rotary drives.

These measuring systems consist of a sensor and a magnetic tape, which features Permagnet technology for an absolutely homogeneous magnetic field. This guarantees high function security, low hysteresis and minimum linearity deviations.

During use, the sensor slides over the encoded tape at a distance of up to 5 mm for completely non-contact operation. The position is available as an absolute or incremental signal.

The tape is available as a strip for linear operations and in ring or disc form for rotary movement. <br/> For additional flexibility you can choose from various interfaces (SSI, BISS-C, SIN/COS, ABZ, IO-Link).

Application examples

  • High-precision position feedback for rotary and swivel drives

    High-precision position feedback for rotary and swivel drives

    The solution

    In order to meet higher safety and environmental standards, process valves need to control the flow with ever greater accuracy and process reliability. If an encoder disc system is integrated in the position controller or swivel drive for position feedback, exact and processsecure flow is ensured.

    The features

    • Rapid startup: High tolerances between sensor and code disc
    • Media flow-through is possible: Sensor position eccentric to the axis

  • Absolute motor feedback in real time

    Absolute motor feedback in real time

    The solution

    With the compact version of the absolute encoder disc, a simple to integrate, highly precise absolute feedback solution is possible for detecting the actual position of motors and drives. The encoder disc system offers you a first-class alternative to traditional magnetic, inductive or optical solutions.

    The features

    • No time consuming reference point moves thanks to the absolute measuring system
    • Rapid startup: Generous distance between sensor and code disc
    • Insensitive to run-out tolerances, short installation times
