Non-contact linear absolute encoders – EXA

Non-contact open linear absolute encoders - EXA

Non-contact open linear encoder for high accuracy, high speed applications.

It consists of a compact reader head with all the electronics and optics integrated into a single body that may be mounted from the side or from the top.
It has an LED to help mounting it and includes a 1 or 3 meter cable with a connector, a 10 mm wide adhesive reflective stainless steel tape that is highly resistant to solvents.

Measuring lengths in millimeters:
Available from 70 mm to 3,020 mm in 50 mm (*) increments.

Model description:
TAA + L2A: non-contact open linear connector with a reader head that uses SSI protocol and an adhesive absolute tape.
