Absolute linear encoders provide the absolute
position value immediately upon switch-onwithout previous movement
of the machine axes. The absolute value is transmitted serially to the subsequent
electronics over the EnDat interface.
The LC 181
absolute linear encoder generates the absolute value from seven incremental
tracks. The grating periods of the tracks differ in a manner that
makes it possible to evaluate the measuring signals of all seven tracks
to identify any location on the scale within the measuring length.
The LC 181 is mechanically compatible with the LS 106 and LS 186
incremental linear encoders.
slim line housing profile makes the LC 481 particularly suited
to applications with restricted mounting space. The LC 481 is
mechanically compatible with the LS 406 and LS 486 incremental
