Overview

The LM15 is a contactless high-speed magnetic encoder designed for linear or rotary motion sensing in harsh environments. The LM15 features a compact sealed readhead that rides at up to 4.0 mm from the self-adhesive magnetic scale or ring.

Features

  • Ride height from 0.1 mm to 4 mm
  • Resolutions from 625 µm to 5 µm
  • Axis lengths of up to 100 m
  • Industry standard digital outputs
  • Bidirectional reference mark
  • TRS track system compatible
  • Distance coded reference mark compatible

Benefits

  • Easy to install with wide installation tolerances
  • High speed operation
  • Excellent dirt immunity
  • Integral set-up LED
