Introduction to Magnetic Tape and reader-head Systems:

All our magnetic reader-heads conform to EIA422 standards and implement full differential encoder connections and screen cables to ensure the best possible noise immunity. With resolutions as fine as 0.5um and accuracies to 5um they can easily match optical scales for the majority of machine tool, automation and fabrication applications.

All our magnetic tape is precision encoded with either a 1mm, 2mm or 5mm pole-pitch depending on the level of performance required. The tape consists of a coded Nitrile rubber material bonded to a stainless steel band with a further stainless steel cover. This combination requires no optical sensing and so is impervious to liquids and dust making them ideal for machine tool, automation and fabrication applications.

Catalogue Absolute Measurement Solutions:

Absolute systems are the latest generation of measurement solutions and can can instantly provide position to the measuring system on power-on when used with a compatible controller.

Perfect for a great range of applications where instantaneous position is required. The tape has an incremental track and a pseudo-random second track that provides the absolute pitch position. By combining these the absolute position can be determined to within 0.5um.

There are no batteries to ‘remember’ positions, no need to move between indexes. Just apply power and read off position through either SSI or BiSS-C.
