Lika Electronic's new SFE incremental wire encoder can be freely programmed to accommodate any custom resolution. Whatever the industry or application (utility vehicles and mobile equipment, stabilizing slides, telescopic cranes, forklifts, loading platforms and electro-medical equipment ...), it provides the information as right as you need it to be.
The parametrization via PC is exhaustive to meet individual requirements: number of pulses up to 16,384 PPR (0.01 mm max. linear resolution), Index mark position and duration, counting direction. SFE provides AB0 and inverted /AB0 signals via Push-Pull and Line Driver compatible Universal output circuit. The output signal voltage level is according to the input voltage (+5Vdc +30Vdc). M12 and M23 connector and cable options in either axial or radial output are available.
Furthermore SFE can be supplied with preprogrammed resolution (0.05, 0.1 and 0.2 mm). Built in a robust IP65 protection enclosure with 5,000 mm (197") and 10,000 mm (394") measuring lengths, this cable pulling encoder can operate at a max. speed of 2 m/s. It is mechanically interchangeable with SF-I and SF-A series.
The draw wire unit product family also includes the absolute versions available in several interfaces: SSI, CANopen, Profibus, Profinet, EtherCAT, Powerlink, and further the analogue current and voltage output version with TEACH-IN buttons
