Low Profile Linear Encoder for Slides and Stages
Featured Product from Hymark/Kentucky Gauge
The SMP from Lika Electronic is a low profile magnetic encoder designed for feedback on linear guideways, carriages, slides, positioning tables and all applications that need the scale to be mounted laterally.
This encoder is differentiated from others in the family by the lateral mounting of the tape. This makes it unique and especially suitable for installation in linear guideways, carriages, slides, positioning tables and all applications that need the tape to be mounted laterally and the height of the measuring system to be reduced as much as possible. The tape is narrowed to a width of only 10 mm (0.39”) and is insensitive to dust, oil, grease, water and most common chemical agents.
The dimensions of the sensing head have been minimized; the enclosure is very compact and slim, yet it preserves its durability with IP67 protection rate. Thus, the measuring system can reliably operate in aggressive industrial environments. Furthermore for ease of assembly this encoder ensures very wide mounting tolerances up to 2 mm (0.08”).
SMP allows for resolutions up to 12.5 µm up to 100 m (328 ft) travels. It generates quadrature signals with inverted and Index signals via Push-Pull (HTL) +10÷30Vdc and Line Driver (TTL) +5Vdc ±5% output circuits. SMP encompasses high-flex cables especially suited for use in cable drag chains, tested for more than one million cycles. The magnetic tape can be supplied with optional protection cover strip and tape terminals.
