Courtesy: RSF ERSF Elektronik's MS 15 optical kit style linear encoder is designed for motion applications in the metrology, semiconductor, medical, and automation industries. The MS 15 optical kit style encoder is only 36 mm x 13.5 mm x 14.8 mm in size, and provides a 40 micron grating pitch on an 8 mm wide steel tape carrier that has a double-stick backing for mounting directly to the machine axis. The measuring tape comes with accuracies of ±5 or ±15 microns per meter and comes in lengths up to 20 meters. The tape also features the use of optical limits where separate stickers are placed on the scale that are detected by the reader head which sends the limit signals to the control or readout. A mounting tool is also offered to help install the measuring tape onto the machine axis with precision.

The MS 15 reader head has a new advanced online compensation built-in which continuously adjusts signal deviations of amplitude, offset, and phase over a wide range. The reader head also has a status LED which indicates to the user the mounting condition of the reader head with respect to the scale. The reader head is available with 1 V peak to peak analog output, or a digital TTL output with a resolution down to 100 nm.
