Linear Encoders – for Manually Operated Machine Tools

For typical applications on manual machine tools such as milling machines or lathes, display steps of 10 µm are sufficient. This is provided by the linear encoder of the SENC 50 and SENC 150 series without interpolation. Jig boring machines, grinding machines, and measuring and inspection tasks normally require display steps of 1 µm and better. The SENC 50 and SENC 150 with integral 5-fold or 10-fold interpolation are suitable for these higher requirements.
