MSA 700 and 800 Series slim-profile linear encoders from RSF Elektronik, Austria, distributed in the U.S. by Heidenhain Corp., Schaumburg, IL, are suited for metrology applications that require protection from contamination, such as optical comparators, video systems, and vision systems. The sealed incremental linear encoders have grating pitches of 20, 10, and 8 µm and are offered in accuracies of 2, 3, and 5 µm. The reading carriage and reading head are connected by a magnetic coupling and the carriage is constrained by a magnet guide, eliminating wear, providing even pressure along the measuring length, and allowing for generous mounting tolerances.
