Encoders Accommodate Unique Requirements

At the upcoming SPS IPC Drives show, November 28-30, HEIDENHAIN will be presenting encoders designed specifically for the requirements of the robotics, medical technology, and drive technology industries.

For robots, the ECI 4000 absolute inductive rotary encoder supports hollow shaft diameters of 180 mm. A modular system with a scale drum and a separate scanning unit, it features mounting characteristics suitable for use in robots. The ECI 4000 rotary encoder, ECA 4000 angle encoder, and the WMRA from AMO, significantly improve the absolute position accuracy of the tool center point on industrial robots by 70% to 80%.

For healthcare apps, the LIC 4000 absolute linear encoder and the ECI 4000 inductive rotary encoder for a hollow-shaft diameter of 90 mm are available. For highly dynamic drives, the inductive rotary encoders titled ECI/EQI 1100 without bearing (diameter of 37 mm) and ECI/EQI 1300 (diameter of 65 mm) provide position feedback in highly dynamic applications. These encoders’ strengths include providing high control quality and system accuracy as well as high resistance to vibrations and electromagnetic influences. All variants support safety integrity level SIL 2, category 3 PL d. Heidenhain Corp., Schaumburg, IL. 877-887-6431 / 877-920-2703 http://www.heidenhain.us
