LM10 linear magnetic encoder system

New linear magnetic encoder range brings additional performance,
durability and value to a wide range of applications.

LM10 linear magnetic encoderThe LM10 linear encoder joins Renishaw's proven family of rotary magnetic encoders. The new LM10 linear magnetic encoder brings 100 m travel and fit-and-forget reliability to demanding high-speed, precision applications.

The solid-state, non-contact design features a compact IP68 rated readhead that rides at up to 1.5 mm from the self adhesive magnetic strip scale.

Simplified installation and reference marking

The non-contact magnetic sensing delivers reliability in applications too dusty, dirty, greasy or destructive for optical encoders, while providing OEMs with major cost savings. Installation is simplified with an integral set-up LED, wide installation tolerances and an applicator tool for the scale/reference mark. The reference mark can either be ordered at a fixed position or it can be applied by the user with the applicator tool supplied.

Application versatility including digital and analogue outputs

Offering great application versatility, the LM10 linear magnetic encoder comes in digital or analogue output variants and offers a range of customer-selectable resolutions including 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 μm options. The LM10 delivers high speed operation of up to 25 m/s (4 m/s at 1 μm resolution).

Engineered for service in extreme conditions, the solid-state LM10 linear encoder offers operating temperatures from -20 °C to 85 °C, water-proof sealing to IP68, together with high resistance to shock, vibrations, and pressure. The non-contact, frictionless design eliminates wear while reducing hysteresis for high precision at high speed and acceleration.

Solutions to applications in hostile environments

The LM10 linear magnetic encoders bring reliable solutions to applications in hostile environments such as woodworking, stone-cutting, sawing, metalworking, textiles, packaging, paper and converting, plastics processing, automation and assembly systems, laser/flame/water-jet cutting, electronic chip/board production, etc.

Magnetic encoder range

To meet the increasing demand for reliable, low cost, rotary and linear encoding Renishaw works closely with our associate company RLS d.o.o., to produce a range of robust magnetic linear encoders, magnetic ring encoders and magnetic rotary encoders.
