Our magnetic encoder systems handle the high clock frequencies and accelerations of the especially maintenance-friendly linear drive for short strokes with no difficulty.
Since there is no cable between the stationary part and the easy to move slide of the linear drive, no drag chain is needed. The magnetic tape can be installed on the lower part of the slide and the sensor head on the base plate. The sensor head now reads the current slide position absolutely and without contact. Its very precise measurement signal ensures high control quality.
