Long range laser encoder products
The Renishaw HS20 laser head is the core component in a non-contact interferometric based encoder system for long axis, high accuracy, linear position feedback applications.
Utilises environmental sensors to monitor a machine's ambient environment and provides real-time compensation of the position feedback signals.
The standard linear interferometer optics kit is suitable for axes lengths up to 30 m.
Utilising a large retroreflector and periscope assembly, the Long range interferometer optics kit is suitable for axes length up to 60 m.
Providing 0.6 mrads of pitch and yaw adjustment through the optical beam steerer speed up to improve the ease of alignment process.
To prevent the laser from being interrupted during operation, Renishaw ducting encases the laser beam to protect it within harsh environments.
The alignment plate provides stable mounting locations for both the laser head and interferometer optics and offers translation and rotation adjustment to ease laser alignment.
