The LIDA exposed linear encoders are specially designed for high traversing speeds up to 10 m/s, and are particularly easy to mount with various mounting possibilities. Steel scale tapes, glass or glass ceramic are used as carriers for METALLUR graduations, depending on the respective encoder. They also feature a limit switch.
Exposed linear encoders are designed for use on machines and installations that require especially high accuracy of the measured value.
Typical applications include:
Measuring and production equipment in the semiconductor industry
PCB assembly machines
High-accuracy machine tools
Measuring machines and comparators, measuring microscopes, and other precision measuring devices
