Measure lengths precisely with this device

By Mary Page Bailey |

The new LMSCA length-measuring system (photo) is extremely compact and yet extremely robust. The system is just 120 mm long, and can be combined with measuring wheels of 200-mm circumference. With the pre-assembled encoders of the WDGP series, resolutions of 80 pulses per mm or 0.0125 mm per pulse are achievable. The company’s proven magnetic sensor technology is now available with any pulse count — from 1 to 16,384 pulses per rotation. The inverted signals, TTL and HTL output are also selectable. The measuring system has adjustable contact pressure from 0 to 20 N, in 5-N increments, as well as a loss-proof central screw. — Wachendorff Automation USA Inc., Chicago Ill.
