Incremental

Tape

1.5 x 10 x ML

Incremental tapes are either encoded full-grating or half-grating (for use with EMRB sensors only). The first half has the incremental track encoded and the second half a coded reference track. The same reader-head sensor can be used with both standard incremental tape or with our distance-coded tape.

Both the tape and cover are supplied with a self-adhesive backing for easy installation and available on rolls up to 50m in length. Please call for longer lengths.

60 x 16 x 22

The EMRB series reader-head sensors as standard use our half-grating tape although they can be supplied for use with full-grating tape by special order.

As with all our magnetic reader-head sensors the EMRB electronics are fully encapsulated in an epoxy resin making them impervious, under normal operating conditions, to both coolants and material dust.

The EMRB sensors are available with EIA422 or 1Vpp output signals and are capable of ultra-high speeds upto 10m/s with a 5um resolution.

MLS110 reader-heads have a simple slotted mounting making for easy install and work with full-grating tape (2mm or 5mm pole-pitch). The can be supplied to give one reference per pitch or with a side-facing reference sensor that can detect a user located reference.

Available with EIA422, 5VDC supply, or Push-Pull outputs with a 10-30Vdc supply it is equally at home in machine tool, fabrication or automation applications.

The MLS120 reader-head sensor has the benefit of a connector at the reader-head that aids both installation and service.

It can be supplied with full-grating tape (2mm or 5mm pole-pitch) with either one reference per pitch or with a side-facing reference sensor that can detect a user located reference.

Available with EIA422, 5VDC supply, or Push-Pull outputs with a 10-30Vdc supply it is equally at home in machine tool, fabrication or automation applications.

MLS130 is a miniature reader-head for restricted mounting spaces and provides a reference every pitch. Available in resolutions from 1um it works with our 2mm pole-pitch full-grating tapes.

Available with EIA422, 5VDC supply, or Push-Pull outputs with a 10-30Vdc supply it is equally at home in machine tool, fabrication or automation applications.

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.
