Linear

Absolute linear encoders consist of a readhead with integrated sensing and processing electronics and a magnetised scale that serves as an information carrier. The electronics in the readhead convert the magnetisation signature of the scale into an absolute position.

The absolute magnetic encoder system is highly reliable due to the non-contact absolute measuring principle, the built-in safety algorithms and the high-quality materials and components used. The status of the measurement is also provided by real-time monitoring of several internal parameters, ensuring reliable detection of potential errors such as scale demagnetization, overspeed and incorrect installation, to name just a few. This built-in diagnostics increases the safety level of the application in which the encoder is used.
