Standard-Setting Absolute Linear Encoder Now Available With Fanuc Interface
SCHAUMBURG, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 06/11/13 -- HEIDENHAIN's LC 200
linear encoder continues to set the standard in linear measurement on
long machine tool axes. Now available with a Fanuc interface, this
encoder is increasing its available interface options and meeting
An absolute type encoder, the LC 200 offers its advantages for
measuring lengths of up to 28 meters, such as ensuring that the
absolute position value is available immediately upon switch on. And
due to the design and use of a smaller scanning unit with increased
rigidity in measuring direction, the LC 200 is especially useful in
high speed machining applications using linear motors.
It is also important to note that the LC 200 is assembled on a
machine from individual components. The housing sections feature an
improved mounting and sealing technology. An integrated seal on the
face and a tongue and groove system make it possible to slide the
housing sections together with ease. Large mounting tolerances
facilitate easy assembly of the entire system.
System accuracy for the LC 200 is +/-5 Âµm. It is available with both
HEIDENHAIN's EnDat and Fanuc's interfaces.
