RLS with its associate company Renishaw announce the availability of the new AksIM true absolute magnetic rotary encoder for embedded OEM motion control applications. With up to 20 bit resolution and zero hysteresis in a unique through-bore configuration, AksIM sets a new standard for magnetic encoder performance and value.
Traditional optical encoders are essential components in motion control systems. However, for
reliable operation it is necessary to protect them from harsh environments. This limits the diversity
of applications where encoders can be deployed and can add substantial cost – until now.
Developed by RLS d.o.o., a new line of high-performance magnetic encoders provide many of the
features of optical encoders but without increased robustness.
RLS d.o.o., a Slovenian-based supplier of rotary and linear motion sensors, has tripled the size of its operations with a new, 2,100 m2 custom built facility in Komenda, Slovenia. The new building which includes a 180 m2 clean room with electro-conductive flooring and conforming to ISO-8 standard, represents a significant expansion to the design and manufacturing capability for RLS, which since 2000 has been an associate of the Renishaw Group.Continue reading →
The OnAxis™ commutation magnetic rotary encoder range is designed for use in motor feedback applications requiring both A, B, Z incremental and U, V, W commutation signals.
The E201 is a single channel USB encoder interface suitable for use with a wide variety of 5 V rotary and linear encoders. The E201 replaces the P201 interface.
RoLin™ is a component level encoder system consisting of an RLM readhead and MS magnetic scale or MR ring. It has been designed for embedded motion control applications as a position control loop feedback element.
The actuator is a periodically magnetised scale or ring with a pole length (P) of 2 mm. Radial or axial reading of the ring is possible.
The New LM15 linear magnetic encoder brings up to 100 m travel to demanding high-speed applications. The solid-state, non-contact design features a compact IP68 readhead that rides at up to 4 mm from the self adhesive magnetic strip scale.
The non-contact magnetic sensing delivers reliability in applications too dusty, dirty, greasy or destructive for optical encoders, while providing OEMs with major cost savings. Installation is simplified with an integral setup LED, wide installation tolerances and an applicator tool for the scale. The reference mark is bidirectional and can be ordered at a fixed position at point of order.
Offering great application versatility, the LM15 encoders come in digital output variants and offer a range of resolutions including 5 µm, 10 µm, 20 µm, 50 µm, 125 µm and 625 µm. The LM15 delivers high speed operation of up to 50 m/s (more than 42 m/s at 25 µm).
Engineered for extreme service, the solid-state LM15 linear encoders offer operating temperatures from -20 °C to +85 °C, water-proof sealing to IP68, and high resistance to shock, vibrations, and pressure. 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, paper and converting, plastics processing, automation and assembly systems, laser/flame/water-jet cutting, electronic chip/board production, etc.
