Series KP Optical Scale Linear Transducers

Optical scale series KP

The optical linear scales series KP are accurate and reliable. Thanks to their compact dimensions they can be applied even on small-sized machine tools (millers, lathes, grinders, spark erosion machines).

The possibility to adjust the scales in the mounting phase avoids any problem linked to mechanical alignement and results particularly useful in case of machines retrofitting.

The optical scales series KP available on different reading resolution values (0.1, 0.01, 0.005 mm) and their strokes range from 250 to 700 mm.
