The LC 200 linear encoder from Heidenhain (Schaumburg, IL) is designed for linear measurement on long machine tool axes. Available with a Mitsubishi interface, the encoder is an absolute-type encoder that measures lengths of up to 28 meters. It ensures that the absolute position value is available immediately upon switch-on. It is suited for high-speed machining applications using linear motors. The housing sections feature an integrated seal on the face, and a tongue and groove system makes it possible to slide the housing sections together. System accuracy is ±5 μm.
