Renishaw Optical Encoders

Renishaw Optical Encoders

Renishaw optical encoders have CE approval, RoHS compliance, and are manufactured by Renishaw under strict quality controls that are certified to ISO 9001:2008

Rotary incremental encoders

  • Rotary scales are used for angular position information and the motion control of rotating elements.
  • Incremental encoders are used in applications where instant and accurate relative position is needed, in either analogue or digital format.
  • Ultra-High Vacuum (UHV) encoders are optimised for use in vacuum environments.

– Rotary incremental: rotary (angle) rings/discs with incremental readheads

– Rotary incremental UHV: rotary (angle) rings/discs with incremental readheads compatible with ultra-high vacuum applications

 

Rotary absolute encoders

  • Rotary scales are used for angular position information and the motion control of rotating elements.
  • Absolute encoders are used in applications that need a high speed unique digital output for each position and offer functional immunity from power interruptions.
  • Ultra-High Vacuum (UHV) encoders are optimised for use in vacuum enviroments.
  • Extended Temperature Range (ETR) encoders are able to operate in environments with extreme high and low temperatures.

– Rotary absolute: rotary (angle) rings with true-absolute readheads

– Rotary absolute UHV: Rotary (angle) rings with true-absolute readheads compatible with ultra-high vacuum applications

– Rotary absolute ETR: rotary (angle) rings with true-absolute readheads compatible with extended temperature range applications
