Overview

The HiLin series of highest performance general purpose robust magnetic encoders is a family of linear incremental systems suitable for a variety of demanding applications. The incremental encoder system consists of a compact sealed readhead and a separate magnetic scale.

Features

  • Customer selectable resolutions down to 0.1 μm
  • Low hysteresis: ≤1 μm
  • Low interpolation error (SDE): ±1.5 μm
  • High travel speed (25.28 m/s with 1 μm resolution)
  • Wide operating temperature range from –40 °C to +75 °C

Benefits

  • Easy handling and installation
  • Suitable for applications in very demanding environments
  • Unique, periodic or distance-coded reference mark
