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.
