Description


S1

28 x 33 x ML+125

S1 scales are pre-assembled spar and tape combinations where the tape is mounted on an aluminium spar and then protected by a encapsulated stainless steel cover strip. The scale mounting also has 4pt plane adjustment built in so that poor, or tapered, surfaces can easily mounted to.

In lengths up to 1000mm travel they are low profile with the scale just 28x10mm (excluding reader-head sensor).

The S1 scales can also be cut-to-length as part of the installation process, so no need to go with standard sizes as they can be adjusted to get every last mm of travel.


S2

Various

The S2 scales use a double extrusion compared to the S1 style making them ideal for longer lengths. Available in single lengths up to 2000mm they are also available in a modular form for easy on-site assembly in lengths up to 30m or even longer.

With optional guided reader-head carriage and range of mounting accessories they can be installed on a range of machines even where the mounting surface is poor or even not continuous.


PS310

30.3 x 8.6 x L

The PS310 aluminium profile has an integrated stainless steel cover that protects the tape from dust, swarf and other direct contaminants.

Generally supplied with our 5mm full-grating tape the PS310 is ideal for small machines, hobby machines, automation or fabrication applications when combined with our MLS reader-head sensors: See HERE


PS210

23 x 6 x L

The PS210 is our lowest profile aluminium spar. The stainless steel cover that protects the tape from dust, swarf and other direct contaminants is applied after installation using an adhesive backing.

Generally supplied with our 5mm full-grating tape the P210 is ideal for small machines, hobby machines, automation or fabrication applications when combined with our MLS reader-head sensors: See HERE


PS110

38.5 x 30 x L

The PS110 all-in-one aluminium profile has the added benefit that in addition to being a tape mounting spar it is also the scale cover.The stainless steel cover that protects the tape from dust, swarf and other direct contaminants is applied after installation using an adhesive backing.

Perfect for cost sensitive applications and a broad range of machine tool and fabrication  it is generally supplied with our 5mm full-grating tape and can be used in combination with our MLS reader-head sensors: See HERE

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.
