The LM13 is a contactless high-speed linear magnetic encoder designed for DPI applications.
The system features a compact sealed readhead that rides at up to 1.5 mm from the self-adhesive magnetic strip scale, which brings up to 100 m travel.
Simple to install, the LM13 features an integral set-up LED on the readhead, wide installation tolerances and an applicator tool for the adhesive-backed magnetic scale. A bidirectional reference is provided that can be actuated either by a preset mark integrated within the scale or by adding a reference sticker on top of the scale with the help of a self aligning installation tool.
The encoder comes in digital output variants and offers a range of customer selectable resolutions from 25,600 dpi to 100 dpi.
Engineered for extreme service, the solid-state LM13 linear encoder operates from -10 °C to +80 °C, has water-proof sealing to IP68 and is highly resistant to shock, vibrations and pressure. The robust magnetic scale is also resistant to a range of chemicals commonly found in industry. The non-contact, frictionless design eliminates wear while reducing hysteresis giving precision at high speeds and accelerations.
For applications which demand that the MS scale can be removed easily please consider TRS track system.
