Overview

LinACE™ is an extremely robust absolute linear cylindrical encoder system designed to be integrated into the servomechanism as a transducer, providing accurate measurements with excellent resolution and repeatability. It can be used as a control device or integrated directly into hydraulic, pneumatic, electromechanical actuators and linear motors as a position or velocity feedback element.

Features

  • Resolution up to 0.5 μm
  • Measuring length up to 450 mm
  • Accuracy to ±5 μm
  • Asynchronous serial, PWM, SSI and BiSS interface

Benefits

  • Built-in self-monitoring
  • Integral bearings
  • Small footprint
  • Suitable for highly dynamic control loops
