Miniature linear encoder

By Control Engineering Staff June 1, 2000

Schaumburg, Ill. -Smaller than an audio cassette, new RGH41 linear encoders are at home in shop-floor applications with tight spaces. These compact encoders (0.63 x 0.63 x 0.39 in.) provide measurement speeds up to 48 ft/sec (15 m/sec), with resolutions up to 0.2 micron for linear motors and motion systems with critical positioning needs. Set-up tolerances are said to be wide, while features such as cut-and-tape scale and an LED set-up indicator further simplify installation.
