Robotics & Cobotics

No matter how excellent the design, a robot still relies on the components used. Position encoders are one of the key components for robot's position, orientation and motion control.


Outstanding performance

RLS™ non-contact magnetic encoders offer outstanding performance, system safety and stability for robotic applications.

Wide range of options

The encoders come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes allowing a more flexible system design.

High reliability

Thanks to non-contact magnetic encoder technology RLS sensors bring reliable operation for years to come.

Safety through redundancy

Thanks to the redundant configuration possibility of RLS™ encoders, robotics & cobotics systems achieve enhanced safety, ensuring uninterrupted and hazard-free operations across diverse applications.

PAL robotics success story

"What we like most is the wide range of options and the ability to customize each component. RLS encoders have many configurations - it is possible to choose from many different communication protocols, sensor sizes and interfaces. The more parameters for us, the better, because we want to make robots lighter, more compact and more powerful".
