New Encoder Modules Ideal for Robotics

October 11, 2021

encoder modulesSCHAUMBURG, IL (September 2021) – HEIDENHAIN’s new MRS encoder module series for robot arms has been expanded and is now available with redesigned embedded bearings to better withstand outside tilting forces. This new compact and all-inclusive design also significantly simplifies the installation process.

The new MRS 2280 and 2281 encoder modules have been specifically designed for use in tilting and rotary axes with high tilting rigidity bearings, making them ideal for measuring arms and measuring robots. Overall, the MRS 2200 series provides options with an easily mountable ultra-compact design, system accuracy of ±10”, and tilt resistance of up to 52 Nm/mrad tilt resistance.

Such as with HEIDENHAIN’s other angle encoder modules, each of the new MRP 2200 encoder modules consist of a high accuracy angle encoder and robust embedded bearings that form one compact module. Because the bearing and encoder components are already ideally aligned and adjusted, builders can forego having to make those typical complex adjustments reducing their installation efforts up to 70%.
