RGH41 linear encoders from Renishaw Inc. are suitable for linear motors and critical-positioning motion systems. The devices, which measure 15 x 15 x 9.8 mm, deliver speeds up to 15 m/s with resolutions as high as 0.2 µm. The noncontact encoder runs on a 40-µm pitch scale with 0.8-mm ride height and includes shielding against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference. Applications include production of miniaturized electronics and boards, metrology and testing, laser cutting and automated assembly.
