Incremental Magnetic Linear Encoder System

Incremental Magnetic Linear Encoder System

Expanded Ride Height Solves Issues with Variable Gap Distance

The BML SF2 magnetic linear encoder offers highly accurate incremental position feedback and trouble-free installation and operation thanks to its expanded ride height. The BML SF2 system provides 12 micrometer system accuracy at gap distances up to 1.0 mm and a maximum working gap distance of 1.8 mm.

The BML SF2 features industry-standard A/B/Z quadrature or analog sine/cosine interfaces for universal applicability. The integrated, highly-visible status LED provides at-a-glance system status, and is helpful during installation, start-up and operation.
