Linear and rotary standard range encoders and linear self-guided

Types of incremental encoders

  • Linear encoder: Ideal for milling, grinding, lathe and boring mill applications requiring federates of up to 120 m/min and vibrations of up to 10 g.
  • Rotary encoder: Used as a measuring sensor for rotary movements, angular speeds and also linear movement when connected to a mechanical device like ball screw. They are also used on various types of machine tools and robotic applications.

Measuring Methods
Fagor Automation uses two measuring methods in their incremental encoders:

  • Graduated glass: Linear encoders with a measuring length of up to 3 040 mm and rotary encoders.
  • Graduated steel: Linear encoders over 3 040 mm measuring length.
