SCIENTISTS ANGLE FOR POSITION

An accurate angle encoder from Heidenhain is now helping scientists using the Daresbury synchrotron to determine measurements to better than a second-of-arc precision. The 34m diameter synchrotron at the Cheshire laboratory speeds electrons from an adjacent linear accelerator to 2,000MeV and is used in around 600 individual experiments p.a.

An accurate angle encoder from Heidenhain is now helping scientists using the Daresbury synchrotron to determine measurements to better than a second-of-arc precision.

The 34m diameter synchrotron at the Cheshire laboratory speeds electrons from an adjacent linear accelerator to 2,000MeV and is used in around 600 individual experiments p.a.

Selected for their accuracy and repeatability, and to meet a measuring requirement of 0.0001 of a degree, the Heidenhain ROD 800 encoders are playing a vital role in a closed loop system.
