  • Very high repeatability
  • Very small signal periods (4 µm)
  • Compact design for limited installation space
  • Interface: 1 VPP
Compact design

The LF 485 linear encoder delivers high accuracy and a rugged design with a small footprint. Its compact dimensions also make it ideal for very limited installation space.

Easy installation

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

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.

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.
