Multi-Section Linear Encoder Goes Long

HEIDENHAIN’s AMO LMF 9310 multi-section linear encoder targets long-length applications (over 10 ft.) on manually operated machines and is compatible with the company’s ACU-RITE brand of digital readouts. A suitable replacement for the retired ACU-RITE ENC 250 encoder, the LMF 9310 is an inductive encoder available with measuring lengths from 3,150 mm (124”) up to 18,270 mm (719”), in 180 mm (7”) increments.  It comes standard with a 20-µm accuracy grade, 1,000-µm grating pitch, and a 5-µm measuring step. Other features include:

  • Contamination resistance - IP67
  • Insensitive to interfering magnetic fields
  • High precision
  • High resolution
  • Speed up to 3 m/s
  • Operating temperature -10°C to 80°C
  • Distance coded reference pulse
  • Scanning Head includes a flexible mounting coupling to assist in mounting
