What is VIONiC?

The VIONiC readhead combines Renishaw's market proven filtering optics and advanced interpolation into one digital incremental encoder with ultra-high accuracy.
The VIONiC encoder system offers a wide variety of speed and resolution configurations, and an expansive range of linear or rotary scale options. This makes it one of the most versatile encoder for high precision feedback. Designed with intuitive auto-calibration mode, VIONiC readheads are also easy to install.

What is new?

*The VIONiC encoder system is now available in resolutions down to 2.5 nm with enhanced SDE across the product range.

What is RKLC20-S scale?

RKLC20-S is a narrow, low profile stainless steel tape scale featuring 20 µm pitch incremental graduations and IN-TRAC customer selectable reference marks. It is accurate to ±5 µm/m and available in lengths up to 20 metres (>20 m on request). The RKLC20-S is mastered to the machine substrate giving improved metrological performance when the scale ends are rigidly fixed to the substrate.
