POSIC extends the application range of its popular ID1101L linear encoder with an extra long scale. This long scale has a length up to 550 mm and can be cut to length. The scale's width of 4.4 mm and thickness of 0.9 mm match nicely with the very small dimensions of the encoder, so it remains a good solution for applications where space is limited. The scale consists of an FR-4 substrate with high-precision copper patterns and allows a resolution down to 0.3 um. It does not attract ferromagnetic dust/particles, is insensitive to humidity, grease, liquids, doesn't need to be cleaned for correct operation and functions flawlessly inside magnetic fields (e.g. inside an electric motor). The scale is included in the datasheet of the encoder and is available from stock.
