Standard-Setting Absolute Linear Encoder Now Available With Fanuc Interface

SCHAUMBURG, IL--(Marketwired - June 11, 2013) -  HEIDENHAIN's LC 200 linear encoder continues to set the standard in linear measurement on long machine tool axes. Now available with a Fanuc interface, this encoder is increasing its available interface options and meeting further demand.

An absolute type encoder, the LC 200 offers its advantages for measuring lengths of up to 28 meters, such as ensuring that the absolute position value is available immediately upon switch on. And due to the design and use of a smaller scanning unit with increased rigidity in measuring direction, the LC 200 is especially useful in high speed machining applications using linear motors.

It is also important to note that the LC 200 is assembled on a machine from individual components. The housing sections feature an improved mounting and sealing technology. An integrated seal on the face and a tongue and groove system make it possible to slide the housing sections together with ease. Large mounting tolerances facilitate easy assembly of the entire system.

System accuracy for the LC 200 is ±5 µm. It is available with both HEIDENHAIN's EnDat and Fanuc's interfaces.
