Linear kit encoder series with high mounting tolerances
Heidenhain’s LIC 2100 absolute linear kit encoder series is designed to serve applications where very high mounting tolerances and reliability are more important than maximum accuracy. This makes the LIC 2100 encoder useful in the electronics, automation, medical technology and metrology industries, as well as in the machine tool sector. The encoder graduation consists of only one track on a stainless steel tape, which is an absolute track, and provides an encoder resolution to 50 nm. The tape can also be mounted two different ways, either directly to the machine surface with a specially engineered adhesive film, or inserted into an aluminum extrusion, which is also adhered to the machine surface. The scanning units output to the Endat 2.2 interface, and allow speeds up to 10 m/s. The longest measuring lengths available are up to 6020 mm.
