encoders serve as measuring sensors for rotary motion, and for
linear motion when used in conjunction with mechanical measuring
standards such as leadscrews. Areas of application include:
and handling devices
HEIDENHAIN rotary encoders convert rotary motion to electrical
signals by photoelectrically scanning DIADUR circular
graduations. The measuring signals are evaluated either in
numerical controls (NC) and programmable logic controllers (PLC),
or simply in a digital position display unit. Thanks its a wide
range of mechanical and electronics features, the HEIDENHAIN
rotary encoder program offers a the suitable rotary encoder for
virtually any application — from simple positioning tasks to
the highly dynamic control of electrical drives.
The rotary encoders of the ERM product family feature magnetic
graduations on drums.
