Digital Readout Systems and Interface Electronics

Digital readout systems (or position display units) and interface electronics from HEIDNHAIN offer increased accuracy and quality control in myriad applications. From metalworking to measuring microscopes, these products are as easy to use as they are effective.

Why HEIDENHAIN digital readout systems?

  • Systems increase productivity, save time and provide higher precision by translating the values measured by linear encoders, length gauges, rotary encoders or angle encoders into an easy-to-read format
  • They can be installed on new equipment or retrofitted to machines already in operation
  • Systems work with any machine where axis slides are traversed manually
  • Data interface allows for additional processing or printouts of the measured values (most models)
  • Now included in the PT 8016: 12-inch TFT touchscreen display with an IP 65 front
  • Now included in the ND 7013: 7-inch TFT touchscreen display with an IP 65 front
  • Now featured in the ND 5023: A Dynamic Zoom or a Highlight to graphically highlight the axis that is moving
  • Now featured in the ND 5023: The user may select to operate it as a left-handed or right-handed unit

Why HEIDENHAIN interface electronics?

  • Products result in finer measuring steps, increased positioning accuracy and higher control quality by adapting the encoder signals to the interface of the subsequent electronics
  • Ideal for when subsequent electronics are either unable to process the output signals from encoders directly or if additional interpolation of the signals is needed
  • Products work with many incremental encoders, and some can process EnDat and SSI
