The LM15 features a compact sealed readhead that rides at up to 4 mm from the self-adhesive magnetic strip scale, which brings 100 m travel.
Simple to install, the LM15 features an integral set-up LED on the readhead, wide installation tolerances and an applicator tool for the adhesive-backed magnetic scale. A bidirectional reference is provided that can be actuated by a preset mark integrated within the scale or periodically every 5 mm.
The encoders come in digital output variants and offer a range of customer selectable resolutions 5 µm, 10 µm, 25 µm, 50 µm, 125 µm and 625 µm. The LM15 is capable of velocities up to 50 m/s; even at 25 µm resolution it is capable of more than 42 m/s.
Engineered for extreme service, the solid-state LM15 linear encoders operate from -10 °C to +80 °C, have water-proof sealing to IP68 and are highly resistant to shock, vibrations and pressure. The robust magnetic scale is also resistant to a range of chemicals commonly found in industry. The non-contact, frictionless design eliminates wear while reducing hysteresis for high precision at high speeds and acceleration.
The LM15 encoders bring reliable solutions to tough, hard-working applications including woodworking, stone-cutting, sawing, metalworking, textiles, packaging, plastics processing, automation and assembly systems, laser/flame/water-jet cutting, electronic assembly equipment etc.
For applications which demand that the MS scale can be removed easily please consider TRS track system.
