Slim robust pencil-type sensor unit
Bending-resistant cable even when used for moving parts
Plain bearings with 2-point support structure ensure excellent resistance to lateral loads
Resistance to lateral load
High accuracy: The high-precision sensor head has a resolution of 0.1µm and an indication accuracy of max. 1µm for the full range and max. 0.5µm for the narrow range. The high-resolution CMOS sensors measure the amount of movement by reading the glass scales that have different slit patterns at different read positions. This provides accurate measurements even in high-speed measuring operations. It also eliminates mechanical zero position runs when the system has been switched on.
Resistance to upward thrust impact: Even when a sudden upward thrust impact occurs, the resulting load is applied only to the lower section of the sensor unit. The spindle stopper minimizes the impact on the glass scales.
Tip deviation amount of max. 35µm
The sensor head can be changed safely without turning off the controller. This reduces the man-hours required for changing the line setup when different workpieces need to be processed.
