Compact, high-precision magnetic linear encoder systems
Balluff's precision-encoded absolute magnetic tape scale can be attached to the underside of moving slides, to be read by the encoder read head. In this configuration, the electronics head is stationary and the tape is moving, eliminating the need for cumbersome cable drag chains, saving space and reducing costs.
The measurement signal is available upon system is power-up, so no homing or reference run is required to acquire actual position.
- Compact, space-saving components with high size-to-stroke ratio
- Absolute position indication, even after power-up
