The robust RLS magnetic scales consist of a stainless steel carrier and an elastomer-bonded ferrite. The elasto-ferrite layer is magnetised with 2 mm, 2.032 mm or 5 mm long alternating magnetic poles that form an incremental magnetic pattern. Custom magnetisation is also possible.


  • Compatible with incremental RLS readheads
  • Four accuracy grades available:
    ±10 μm/m, ±20 μm/m, ±40 μm/m, ±100 μm/m
  • Partial arc application possibility
  • Optional protective cover foil for heavy duty applications
  • Up to 150 m length


  • Customer selectable position of reference mark
  • Excellent resistance to dirt, dust and humidity
  • Easy installation with adhesive tape, end clamps or track section
