Applying innovation to encoders



Applying innovation to encoders the Renishaw way



Renishaw has been creating breakthrough technologies for over 40 years and have been finding metrology solutions across the manufacturing industry. Through our range of robust encoders we aid in improving manufacturing efficiencies and raising product quality. From magnetic encoders for incremental and absolute requirements, through to high speed optical linear encoders and precision optical angle encoders, we can meet your motion system requirements, including ultra-high vacuum (UHV) applications. Renishaw also presents RESOLUTE™, a true absolute, fine pitch optical encoder system that has excellent dirt immunity and an impressive specification that breaks new ground in position feedback. All systems have an established reputation for ease of set-up and installation, plus minimal cost of ownership.

If you have any questions email us at [email protected] we are always willing to work with you one-on-one to find how we can best improve your specific situation.




Powerful precision in mini

ATOM is an innovative non-contact optical incremental linear and rotary encoder system that uniquely combines miniaturization with leading-edge dirt immunity, signal stability and reliability. This combination is unique in the marketplace and represents a significant advance in the performance and reliability of miniature encoders. ATOM, available in sizes as small as 6.8 mm x 20.5 mm x 12.7 mm, is the world's first miniature encoder to use filtering optics with Auto Gain Control (AGC) and Auto Offset Control (AOC).

Heavy duty performance and safety



The new LinACE™ absolute linear encoder assures reliability with a wide temperature range and a system accuracy of ±5 µm. This heavy-duty absolute encoder system significantly improves performance and safety. LinACE is a heavy-duty absolute linear encoder that is designed for integration into hydraulic, pneumatic and electromechanical actuators as a feedback element for position or velocity. The system is a completely novel approach to linear position feedback which is designed and manufactured by Renishaw's associate company RLS.



True absolute position



Renishaw’s RESOLUTE™ reads a unique single-track optical scale and offers further attractive benefits to machine designers by acquiring absolute position immediately upon switch-on, without the need for battery back-up. This completely eliminates the need for reference returns. Unique combinations of ruggedness, ultra-high speed and exceptional resolution mean that RESOLUTE is already attracting high levels of interest from manufacturers of high-performance lathes as well as slower-moving axes requiring the highest levels of precision and motion control integrity.

True absolute position

A family of InAxis™ linear magnetic encoders offering robust, accurate and repeatable true absolute position measurement for linear actuators. An array of Hall sensors integrated in a single silicon die detects the absolute code written into an information carrier in the form of regions with different magnetic permeability.
