BOGEN offers the X-class product line as a highly accurate and robust measuring solution. X-class is a magnetic alternative to sensitive optical systems which often require complex protection devices and ongoing maintenance to work under harsh conditions without failures. The encoders are based upon a pole pitch of 80 µm and outshine any existing magnetic measuring solutions. The new developed measuring heads X-IKS9 and X-IKS15 read the pole pitch in a reading distance up to 240 µm and reach an accuracy of 5 µm and better. With these developments magnetic encoders are nearly on the same level as optical measuring solutions. Now product developers have a cost-saving alternative for challenging measuring applications. The time when competitors could brush-off magnetic measuring as an imprecise measuring solution is over.

Digital and analog output versions

With the pole pitch of 80 µm you can read nearly the twentyfold pole quantity than using the common pole pitch of 2 mm. The small poles are written extremely precisely and the new X-class measuring heads generate output data with highest accuracy. The measuring head X-IKS9 produces digital output signals and the X-IKS15 produces analog output signals. The new X-class product line can solve high-precision measuring tasks in metrology, industrial automation and other applications.
