LinACE™ flat-board is a board-level absolute linear magnetic encoder system designed for motion control applications as a position and velocity control loop element.

The readhead length only 30 mm and low weight of the encoder system make it suitable for applications with limited space.

LinACE™ flat-board provides accurate measurements with excellent resolution and repeatability. The encoders are available in asynchronous serial over RS422, SSI and BiSS C output versions and offer a range of selectable resolutions from 10 μm to 0.5 μm with speeds up to 5 m/s. The position of the encoder is maintained even if the shaft rotates during forward and backward movement.


  • Small footprint 30 × 25 × 8.5 mm
  • Resolutions up to 0.5 μm
  • Measuring lengths up to 300 mm
  • Absolute position at power-up


  • Built-in self-monitoring
  • Excellent resistance to stray magnetic fields
  • Stable over whole temperature range
  • Suitable for highly dynamic control loops
  • Non-contact technology for high reliability
