Incremental linear transducers are often employed on industrial operating machines.
When combined with counting, visualizing and control systems, they can achieve programmed positions, pre-determined step shifts, and display length or thickness measures.
Elap incremental linear transducers offer several sensors types including magnetic transducers, digital transducers, wire sensors, and optical scales. Each position sensor can be supplied with different strokes and resolution values.
Elap PD & PE series linear transducers are accurate, strong, and easy to mount. They are the ideal solution for measuring thickness and controlling linear displacement on a variety of industrial machines.
There are three standard versions available, each one with or without zero pulse:
The TM + MP200 linear magnetic measuring system is composed of the TM magnetic transducer and the MP200 magnetic band.
The transducer operates contactless, sensing the polarized fields of the magnetic band and converting measurements into digital signals. The system can be used in severe industrial environments, with water, oil, and grease. The mounting method is simple and affordable with accurate and repeatable measurements.
The scanning head TM is contained in a compact, sturdy metal case, and it is available with reading resolution 0.1 mm (TM10) or 0.01 mm (TM100). An electronic zero pulse is generated each 4 mm (type TM10C/TM100C), or matching with one or more external magnets (TM10E/TM100E).
The KD series linear optical readers are accurate and reliable and ideally suited for applications in severe industrial environments.
They can be used on machine tools such as CNCs, boring machines, planomillers, vertical lathes, and punching machines as well as on operating and automatic machines like bending presses, cutting machines, and beading machines. Different reading resolutions are available including 0.1, 0.01, 0.005 or 0.001 mm. The measuring strokes range from 250 to 6500 mm in compact size, and over 6500 in the modular version.
The KP series optical linear scales are accurate and reliable. Their compact size and makes them well-suited for small machine tools such as mills, lathes, grinders, and spark erosion machines.
The scale is adjustable in the mounting phase in order to avoid mechanical alignment, results. This can be particularly useful in cases of machine retrofitting.
The KP series optical scales are available on different reading resolution values (0.1, 0.01, 0.005 mm) with strokes ranging from 250 to 700 mm.
