Renishaw offers a wide range of precision position feedback systems for a diverse range of linear and rotary motion applications.

From our range of robust magnetic encoders for incremental and absolute requirements, through to high speed optical linear encoders and precision optical angle encoders, we can meet your motion system requirements, including ultra-high vacuum (UHV) applications. Renishaw also presents RESOLUTE™, a true absolute, fine pitch optical encoder system that has excellent dirt immunity and an impressive specification that breaks new ground in position feedback. All systems have an established reputation for ease of set-up and installation, plus minimal cost of ownership.

Need a miniature encoder solution? Choose the new ATOM linear and rotary encoder system.

If you require the ultimate accuracy in linear position feedback then look at our range of interferometer-based laser encoders.

Highlights

ATOM cable and FPC readheadsATOM™ miniature encoder system

Optical incremental linear and rotary encoder uniquely combines miniaturisation with high performance.

 
RESOLUTE ETR absolute encoder has been designed to withstand the physical punishment of harsh environments with operation guaranteed down to -40°C (-40°F).
