EIB 1500 Angle Encoder

SCHAUMBURG, Ill., Sept. 24, 2013 — The EIB 1500 external interface box angle encoder from Heidenhain Corp. provides digital calculations of two scanning heads mounted ~180° apart for use on rotary tables, stages and tilting axes.
The device solves accuracy issues associated with bearings and encoder drum centering on rotary axes by adding extra scanning heads. It can be used by OEMs to increase accuracy or as an upgrade path for current installations in the field.
Eccentricity and bearing error can be compensated when two 1-V peak-to-peak position values are averaged and converted to one serial signal; this is done when paired with large hollow-shaft angle encoders without integral bearing.
