HEIDENHAIN angle encoders are characterized by high accuracy values in the arc second range and better.Examples for application:
Because of the design and mounting of the stator coupling, it must only absorb that torque caused by friction in the bearing during angular acceleration of the shaft. RON, RPN and RCN angle encoders therefore provide excellent dynamic performance.
With an integrated stator coupling, the stated system accuracy also includes the deviations from the shaft coupling.Further advantages:
ROD angle encoders with solid shaft are particularly suited to applications where higher shaft speeds and larger mounting tolerances are required. The shaft couplings allow axial tolerances of ± 1 mm.
The angle encoders without integral bearing (modular angle encoders) are intended for integration in machine elements or apparatuses. They are suited for the following requirements:
The ERM modular encoders from HEIDENHAIN consist of a magnetized scale drum and a scanning unit with magnetoresistive sensor. Their MAGNODUR measuring standard and the magnetoresistive scanning principle make them particularly tolerant to contamination.
Angle encoder modules from HEIDENHAIN are combinations of angle encoders and high-precision bearings that are optimally adjusted to each other. They are characterized by their high degree of measuring and bearing accuracy, their very high resolution, and the highest degree of repeatability. The low starting torque permits smooth motions.
