Subsequent Electronics

Interface Electronics

Interface electronics from HEIDENHAIN adapt the encoder signals to the interface of the subsequent electronics. They are used when the subsequent electronics cannot directly process the output signals from HEIDENHAIN encoders, or if additional interpolation of the signals is necessary.

HEIDENHAIN interface electronics are available in various mechanical designs.

Digital Readouts

Digital readouts serve to visualize the values measured with linear encoders, length gauges, rotary encoders or angle encoders. Areas of application include:

  • Measuring and inspection equipment
  • Dividing apparatuses
  • Monitoring of measuring equipment
  • Manual machine tools
  • Measuring machines

Typical characteristics of the user-friendly designed digital readouts:

  • Highly readable, alphanumeric display
  • Simple, logically arranged keypad
  • Ergonomically designed push-button keys
  • Splash-protected front panel
  • Sturdy die-cast housing


Evaluation Electronics

Evaluation electronics for metrology applications offer numerous functions for measured data acquisition and statistical evaluation of measured values.

Measuring and test equipment

HEIDENHAIN encoders provide all information necessary for commissioning, monitoring and diagnostics. PWM inspection devices and PWT testing devices are available specifically for analyzing the encoders. Testing devices are used for checking the function of encoders.
