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 readhead that rides at up to 1.5 mm from the self adhesive magnetic strip scale.
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 setup 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 using the provided applicator tool.
Offering great application versatility, the LM10 encoders come in digital or analog output variants and offer a range of customer selectable resolutions including 1 µm, 2 µm, 5 µm, 10 µm, 20 µm and 50 µm. The LM10 delivers high speed operation of up to 25 m/s (4 m/s at 1 µm).
Engineered for extreme service, the solid-state LM10 linear encoders offer operating temperatures from -20 °C to +85 °C, water-proof sealing to IP68, and high resistance to shock, vibrations, and pressure. The non-contact, frictionless design eliminates wear while reducing hysteresis for high precision at high speeds and acceleration.
The LM10 encoders bring reliable solutions to tough, hard-working applications including 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.
