New Extreme Encoder from Leine & Linde-Image

The new Extreme 1000 series from Leine & Linde offers encoders for severe environments. Available in North America through HEIDENHAIN Corporation, the measurement and function range on this Leine & Linde encoder is especially designed to meet the exceptional requirements of the steel, crane and mining machinery industries. In such applications, the encoder is exposed to extreme mechanical stress, vibrations and shock, as well as dusty environments with high temperatures.

With its sturdy bearings and enclosure, the Leine & Linde 1000 series encoder achieves extraordinary durability in all applications with similar demands. The enclosure, rated IP67, easily protects the encoder's internal components from dust and liquids. Stainless steel housing is available as a special option.

Different incremental and absolute versions of the 1000 series are available, and a combination of the various encoder types can even be integrated in the same 1000 series product. For the first time ever, absolute pulse encoders with the PROFIBUS interface can now be used in extremely tough industrial environments by using this 1000 Series from Leine & Linde. The absolute variants are also available with interfaces such as SSI, EnDat, CANopen, DeviceNet™ or with a parallel output with resolutions up to 25 bit.
