The exposed LIM linear encoder is an attractive solution wherever handling, woodworking or packaging machines require relatively simple linear encoders with high tolerance to airborne liquids or particles and with measuring steps down to 0.01 mm. It operates according to a non-contacting magnetic scanning principle and is therefore free of wear and relatively insensitive to contamination. Its measuring standard is a fully encapsulated steel strip to which a magnetized plastic coating is applied.

The LIM 581 is the proper choice for all applications involving linear motors because it outputs highly interpolable sinusoidal signals in 1 Vpp levels with a signal period of 10.24 mm. The LIM 571 with TTL square-wave signals and a signal period of 40 microns is ideal for direct connection with PLC controls.
