Available from PCA - Plant Control and Automation , LTS high precision magnetic linear encoders operate on an incremental principle and consist of a sensing head and a magnetically encoded tape.

The magnetic tapes on these high precision magnetic linear encoders are made from strontium ferrite bonded into a plastic or rubber matrix which is then bonded onto a steel support. The sensing head glides over this tape, which is magnetised with alternating polarity, with a gap of up to 2.5mm.

The magnetic tape system is mounted on the actuating rod and is coupled free of backlash, thus guaranteeing high accuracy and a long life.

Key features of LTS high precision magnetic linear encoders include:

  • stroke up to 750 mm
  • encoder signal outputs
  • A, B signals
  • non-contacting incremental system
  • resolution 0,005mm, 0,010 mm, 0,025mm or 0,080mm
  • protection Class IP65
  • high operating speed of 5m/s
  • maximum angular movement up to ± 30
  • mechanical fixing and self-aligning linkage using two ball-joints.
As the LTS high precision magnetic linear encoder works on the principle of magnetism, unlike optical systems, it is highly immune to contamination from oils and dust etc. For this reason it is suitable for a wide range of applications in mechanical and vehicle engineering industries as well as in automation and robotics technologies.

LTS high precision magnetic linear encoders are mainly used in:

  • press brake machines
  • horizontal band saw machines
  • transfer machines
  • hydraulic machines
  • sheet metal working machines
  • bending presses
  • plastic and metal injection machines
  • textile machines
  • robotics/materials handling
  • profile cutting machines
  • CNC pipe twisting machines
  • plastic extrusion machines.
