LF 185 series

Incremental linear encoders with full-size scale housing

  • For linear axes up to 3040 mm long
  • Very high repeatability
  • Very small signal periods (4 µm)
  • Interface: 1 VPP
Optimal results

The optical scanning method employed, with its very small signal periods and low interpolation error, enables high control quality and excellent positioning behavior. The added value for the machine tool: greatly improved accuracy and dynamic performance.

Consistent accuracy

The LF linear encoders deliver consistently high accuracy. A high-quality, very low-wear ceramic coupling prevents wear-induced inaccuracy throughout the service life of the encoder.

Easy installation

Sealed linear encoders from HEIDENHAIN are very installer-friendly. As guided system, they provide wide mounting tolerances for fast and easy mounting.
