Encoders for medical technology
Medical technology systems must ensure safety and patient comfort but also meet documentation and cost requirements during production. To meet these demands, you can rely on rotary encoders, angle encoders, linear encoders, and slip rings from HEIDENHAIN, AMO, LTN, NUMERIK JENA, RENCO, and RSF. These products deliver highly accurate, reliable, and long-lasting measurement capability to your specialized solutions for diagnostics, treatment, lab work, and medical rooms.
Medical diagnostics commonly rely on imaging procedures for a non-invasive look inside the body, including X-ray imaging, Computer Tomography (CT), and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). The emitter, detector, and patient must all be precisely positioned in order to obtain a detailed image and to keep the patient’s radiation exposure at a minimum.
Dynamic calculation of contours
Absolute linear encoders such as the LIC 2000 enable highly dynamic linear axis control. Position values are immediately available at all times with no reference runs required.
Safety first: HEIDENHAIN rotary encoders
Available in a large selection and suitable for safety-related applications, HEIDENHAIN rotary encoders such as the ROQ 400 are dependable solutions for diagnostic equipment.
Large axes: AMO angle encoders
Inductive encoders from AMO with a scanning head and scale tape ring are the ideal solutions for position measurement on the large rotating axes of CT machines.
