The LinACE heavy-duty absolute linear encoder from Renishaw is designed for integration into hydraulic, pneumatic and electromechanical actuators as a feedback element for position or velocity.

The system has an accuracy of ±5 µm and users can achieve full closed-loop control, significantly improving safety and performance.

Key features of the absolute linear encoder system
  • solid steel shaft with fully integrated scale
  • sliding readhead module
  • no internal moving parts, making the system highly resistant to shock and vibration
  • surface is hard chrome plated
  • immune to dirt contamination
  • operating temperature of -40ºC to +85ºC
LinACE can be fitted directly onto the front of the actuator, thus minimising overall system size, reducing complexity and eliminating potential failure modes by removing the need for parallel measuring systems.

This technology enables OEMs to consider new possibilities for the use of actuators in space-limited and demanding closed-loop applications. 

LinACE is a completely novel approach to linear position feedback which is designed and manufactured by Renishaw’s associate company RLS.
