The Numerik Jena range of optical linear encoders distributed in Australia by Motion Technologies is well suited to machine tool and laser profiling applications. Scale contamination and incorrect mounting have been issues even the experienced users have come up against in the past. Recent developments with the Numerik Jena product have addressed these concerns.
The new LIA20 range features amplitude and offset deviation compensation to reduce the reader heads sensitivity to contamination and mounting errors. Additionally, the tolerance on the 5V supply voltage of ± 10% makes the system less susceptible to machine voltage surges leading to a lower likelihood of the feedback being disrupted.
The result is being a more robust and reliable signal, offering greater protection for other critical or valuable assemblies on the machine.
Motion Technologies with ten years experience in the application and installation of optical linear encoders are able to provide practical assistance during the critical setup of these devices.
