Absolute Linear Encoder from Heidenhain
Linear encoder now has Mitsubishi interface.
Schaumburg, IL — Heidenhain's LC 200 linear encoder continues is now available with a Mitsubishi interface, increasing its available interface options and meeting further demand.

An absolute type encoder, the LC 200 offers its advantages for measuring lengths of up to 28 meters — such as ensuring that the absolute position value is available immediately upon switch on. Due to the design and use of a smaller scanning unit with increased rigidity in measuring direction, the encoder is especially useful in high-speed machining applications using linear motors.

It is also important to note that the LC 200 is assembled on a machine from individual components. The housing sections have an improved mounting and sealing technology. An integrated seal on the face and a tongue-and-groove system make it possible to slide the housing sections together with ease. Large mounting tolerances facilitate easy assembly of the entire system.

System accuracy is ±5µm, and it is also available with the company's EnDat and Fanuc's interfaces.
