Overview

LinACE™ is an extremely robust absolute linear cylindrical encoder system designed for direct integration into hydraulic, pneumatic, electromechanical actuators and linear motors as a position or velocity feedback element.

The LinACE encoder system is suitable for integration into electrical, hydraulic and pneumatic actuators for motion control in industrial and medical applications. A custom design service for OEM integration is also available.
