Direct feedback for linear direct drives
Linear direct drive

High-performance magnetic linear encoder systems

Balluff's magnetically encoded linear measurement systems are a true alternative to costly, fragile optical systems in linear direct drives. With traverse speeds up to 10 m/s, these real-time-capable position measurement systems deliver precise control, even in highly-dynamic applications. High accuracy and low hysteresis reduce hunting, delivering maximum energy efficiency. Non-contact, wear-free operation resists the contamination that often plagues optical systems, eliminating the need for additional encoder protection. When mounted according to simple guidelines, the strong magnetic fields generated by the linear drive system do not compromise proper operation or reduce system accuracy.
