Gearless linear direct drives are increasingly replacing conventional systems in machine construction and automation applications. Absolute, high-precision multi-slide-capable magnetically encoded linear measuring systems for longer strokes are required for position feedback in the servo axes. Our new BML-G multi-slide-capable absolute measurement system is the ideal solution for linear direct drives. Its precise absolute signal is available over strokes of from 10 to 48000 mm. This increases its efficiency and reduces the multiplicity of parts and design costs.
