Linear Encoder Available For Machine Tools With DROs

Heidenhain's LS 688C linear encoder is a full-size scale that completes the conversion of linear encoders for manual machine tool applications to the 1 Vpp interface. It is available in the common measuring lengths between 170 mm and 3,040 mm, with additions of standard scales available at 670, 870 and 970 mm as well. The scanning carriage on the encoder rides on ball bearings. This results in characteristics such as strong rigidity in the measuring direction and backlash and mounting tolerances, which make it especially designed for use on manually operated machine tools/digital readout (DRO) applications.

The DRO is available with distance-coded reference marks and a connectable cable assembly, which is compatible with the LS 388C scale series. These new scales are plug-and-play compatible with the ND 780 and PT880 DRO systems.
