  • Measuring lengths up to 30 m (to 72 m upon request)
  • Fast and simple installation
  • Large mounting tolerances
  • High acceleration loading
  • Protection against contamination
Sealed linear encoders are available with
  • Full-size scale housing
    – For high vibration loading
    – Up to 30 m measuring length
  • Slimline scale housing
    – For limited installation space
    – Up to 1 240 mm measuring length, up to 2 040 mm with mounting spar or tensioning elements
The aluminum housing of a Heidenhain sealed linear encoder protects the scale, scanning carriage, and its guideway from chips, dust, and fluids. Downward-oriented elastic lips seal the housing. The scanning carriage travels along the scale on a lowfriction guide. It is connected to the external mounting block by a coupling that compensates unavoidable misalignment between the scale and the machine guideways.

Linear encoders for numerically controlled machine tools

Linear encoders from HEIDENHAIN for numerically controlled machine tools can be used nearly everywhere. They are ideal for machines and other equipment whose feed axes are in a servo loop, such as milling machines, machining centers, boring machines, lathes and grinding machines. The beneficial dynamic behavior of the linear encoders, their high permissible traversing speed, and their acceleration in the direction of measurement predestine them for use on highly-dynamic conventional axes as well as on direct drives.

Linear encoders with slimline scale housing

The linear encoders with slimline scale housing are designed for limited installation space. Larger measuring lengths and higher acceleration loads are made possible by using mounting spars or clamping elements.

Linear encoders with full-size scale housing

The linear encoders with full-size scale housing are characterized by their sturdy construction, high resistance to vibration and large measuring lengths. The scanning carriage is connected with the mounting block over an oblique blade that permits mounting both in upright and reclining positions with the same protection rating.

Linear encoders for manually operated machine tools

For typical applications on manual machine tools such as milling machines or lathes, display steps of 10 µm or 5 µm are suf?cient. Such display steps are provided by the LS 300 and LS 600 series linear encoders with an accuracy grade of ± 10 µm per meter traverse.

Incremental Linear Encoder LS 1679 with Integrated Roller Guide

The LS 1679 has been specially developed for press brakes. The basis for its high accuracy and repeatability is its precise glass scale and high-quality integral bearing. Thanks to the material of its steel track and steel roller bearing component pair it is very robust. There are many variants for connection to the machine frame, whereby the ball coupling offers the most degrees of freedom. Besides the standard resolution with 5 µm measuring step there is also a variant with 1 µm. For perfect mounting to the two C-columns there are variants with rightward and leftward cable outlets.
