TONiC™ RESM rotary (angle) encoder system
TONiC RESM angle encoder offers accuracy, resolution, and repeatability at high speed and high temperature. It also offers ultra-low cyclic error and the IN-TRAC™ optical reference mark. Now with resolution to 1 nm and even lower noise (jitter). Performance to suit the most demanding precision applications!
RESM angle encoder offers accuracy, resolution, and repeatability at high speed and high temperature. It also offers ultra-low cyclic error and the IN-TRAC optical reference mark. The RESM angle encoder offers performance to suit the most demanding precision applications.
The TONiC incremental encoder range includes a variety of 'standard' special products which are designed to match the demands of particular rotary applications. Furthermore, Renishaw can provide a number of customer-specific modifications to meet your needs, please contact your local representative to discuss custom options.
TONiC is also available as a linear encoder.
RESM ring features and benefits
The RESM ring is a one-piece stainless steel ring with 20 µm scale marked directly on the periphery, which features the IN-TRAC™ auto-phase optical reference mark. The low profile RESM is available in a wide range of sizes (Ø52 mm to Ø550 mm) and line counts, all of which feature a large internal diameter for flexible integration.
TONiC T2000 readhead & Ti interface features and benefits
TONiC diagnostic kit
TONiC linear and rotary (angle) encoder systems are easy to install with integral set-up LEDs showing a visual indication of optimum set-up. This method of installation is sufficient for the majority of TONiC installations. Customers with the most challenging set-up requirements are now supported by an optional TONiC diagnostic kit to aid installation and system optimisation by reporting system performance and remote signal monitoring from their PC.
The kit consists of a diagnostic software package and a diagnostic hardware kit delivered in a convenient carry-case.
The diagnostic kit enables the user to view the signal amplitude and confirm that the reference mark is phased correctly. An audible indication of signal amplitude can also be output in cases where the software is obstructed during readhead adjustment. The user can also remotely calibrate the system and toggle the AGC (Auto Gain Control) status.
Features and benefits
System accuracy - 20 µm pitch RESM and TONiC
Note: system error is graduation error plus sub-divisional error (SDE). Effects such as eccentricity influence installed performance; for application advice please contact Renishaw.
