New Highly-Accurate LIKselect Encoder

June 28, 2021

SCHAUMBURG, IL (June 2021) – The new LIKselect kit-style linear encoder is designed to make machine motion design ideas come to life while saving valuable space and enabling precise positioning within its control loop. Available now from NUMERIK JENA in North America as part of the HEIDENHAIN group, this miniature three-field scanning sensor is offered with a variety of different frame designs, allowing the LIKselect to be deeply integrated into the heart of even the most complex machine system designs.

With selectable accuracies of ±3 μm/m or ±5 μm/m on a 20 μm pitch scale, the LIKselect encoder is equipped to handle super high accuracy positioning tasks, while its 16mm x 8mm x 2.2mm takes up little real estate on the machine.

See VIDEO highlighting an application and more.

Many useful features are offered in the LIKselect including:

New three-field scanning technology with improved signal quality

  • Highly compact and configurable scanning unit
  • 20 µm grating period and measuring steps down to 78.125 nm
  • No phase and offset errors
  • Standard Incremental Interfaces: 1 VPP, TTL, or RS-422
  • Very low power consumption and heat accumulation
  • Electronic adjustment capability after mounting to reduce static mounting errors
