TONiC™ encoder series
What is TONiC?
TONiC is Renishaw's super-compact, non-contact incremental encoder system that offers speeds up to 10 m/s and, when combined with the Ti interface, resolutions down to 1 nm for both linear and rotary applications. TONiC systems are quick and simple to install with wide set-up tolerances and calibration at the push of a button. TONiC's dynamic signal processing gives improved signal stability with ultra-low Sub-Divisional Error of typically <±30 nm to help realise superior motion control performance.
TONiC UHV brings incremental encoder technology to ultra-high vacuum applications up to 10-10 Torr where high performance in a compact form factor is required.
- Linear scales are used where straight-line position information is needed - usually X, Y or Z axes.
- Rotary scales are used for angular position information and the motion control of rotating elements.
