MAGNETIC ENCODERS FOR SMART FACTORY AUTOMATION

No matter how excellent the design, a robot still relies on the components used. Position encoders are one of the key components for robot's position, orientation and motion control.

RLSTM non-contact magnetic encoders offer outstanding performance, system safety and stability for robotic applications, such as motor feedback, joint position control, linear motion sensing, gripper and force feedback. The encoders come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes allowing a more flexible system design. Thanks to non-contact magnetic encoder technology RLS sensors bring reliable operation for years to come.
