Heidenhain Corp.

Suited for motion applications in industries such as metrology, semiconductor, medical, and automation, the company’s miniature MS 15 optical kit-style linear encoder offers a number of advanced features. These include selectable optical reference marks every 50 mm, optical limit switches, reader head that includes a status LED to indicate mounting conditions, 1-Vp-p or TTL outputs with resolution down to 100 nm, a reader head velocity up to 10m per second, and bolt-hole compatibility with other encoder-company offerings. At a size of only 36 mm x 13.5 mm x 14.8 mm, the MS 15 encoder provides a 40 micron grating pitch on an 8 mm wide steel tape carrier that has a double-stick backing for mounting directly to a machine axis. The measuring tape comes with accuracies of ±5 or ±15 microns per meter and comes in lengths up to 20m. For more info, visit
