LIKselect Kit Makes Positioning Tasks Simpler

June 29, 2021
HEIDENHAIN linear encoder saves time and space.

The LIKselect kit-style linear encoder is designed to make machine motion design ideas come to life while saving valuable space and enabling precise positioning within its control loop. Available from NUMERIK JENA in North America as part of the HEIDENHAIN group, this miniature three-field scanning sensor has a variety of different frame designs, allowing the LIKselect to be integrated into most complex machine system designs. It features selectable accuracies of ±3 μm/m or ±5 μm/m on a 20 μm pitch scale to handle high accuracy positioning tasks, while its 16mm x 8mm x 2.2mm size takes up less real estate on the machine.
