MK Magnetic Absolute Linear Encoder

by Precizika Metrology

Non contact absolute magnetic linear encoder MK has measuring length up to 30 m.

The encoder is used to convert linear displacements of key machine components into electrical signals containing information about components absolute position.

Encoder consists of metal based magnetic band MP, reading head and protective steel cover CV.  Encoder also could be supplied with protective aluminum support SP (instead of protective cover CV), which is mounted on machine for magnetic band protection. 

The encoder has two versions of serial interface SSI or BiSS C.  On option third encoder version is available:  with 2 analog sinusoidal signals with phase shift 90º C and amplitude approx. 1Vpp.
