Featuring a compact sealed read head and a 100.5mm diameter magnetised ring, LM13 ring-style magnetic encoders from Renishaw Oceania are easy to install, with an integral set-up LED and wide installation tolerances.
The read head on these magnetic encoders can ride at up to 1.5 mm from the ring's surface.
LM13 encoders are capable of velocities up to 25,000 revolutions per minute, and are supplied in digital output variants offering a range of customer selectable interpolation factors which deliver resolutions from 1,280 to 327,680 counts per revolution.
Engineered for extreme service, the solid-state LM13 ring encoder operates from
Capable of operating in temperatures ranging from -10ºC to +80ºC, LM13 magnetic encoders are engineered for extreme service, with waterproof sealing to IP68 and high shock, vibration and pressure resistance.
In addition, the robust magnetic ring used in these devices is resistant to a range of chemicals commonly found in industry. A non-contact, frictionless design eliminates wear while reducing hysteresis giving precision at high speeds and accelerations.
The LM13 encoder system can be used in a range of tough, hard working applications which include:
- plastics processing
- automation and assembly systems
- laser/flame/water-jet cutting; and
- electronic assembly equipment.
