Renishaw's optical linear encoders provide zero mechanical hysteresis and excellent metrology. The unique filtering optics withstand a variety of contaminants such as dirt, dust and scratches. Renishaw's encoders ensure that customers' machines run reliably with little or no maintenance.
All linear optical encoder and interface combinations feature an integral set-up LED on the readhead, which speeds installation and removes the need for complex set-up equipment. The newly launched miniature ATOM linear encoder is ideally suited to a variety of space-critical motion control, inspection and metrology applications. Stainless steel and gold tape scales are provided in cut-to-measure lengths, while stainless steel and Zeromet™ spar scales are supplied in both standard and custom lengths. Glass spar is also available in defined lengths to 1000 mm. All scale types have the option of self-adhesive backing, which eliminates drilling and tapping, saving time and money.
