Balluff's magnetic encoder technology has advanced to the point that it can challenge general-purpose optical scale encoders. Magnetic encoders can deliver equal or better performance than many optical encoders, with higher robustness and lower total cost.
The BML absolute linear magnetic encoder systems from Balluff ensure absolute positional feedback in every position. They can be used immediately – no reference run needed. Continues working right after a loss of operating voltage or restarting the system.
The BML absolute linear magnetic encoder systems ensure dynamic and precise positioning during semi-conductor assembly.
