New encoder built around magnetic measurement

Siko says its Type MLA absolute magnetic encoder is the first design to use non-contact digital magnetic technology in order to provide an extremely robust means of obtaining linear and angular position information.

The magnetic strip has 524288 unique digital steps along its maximum travel, so should the sensor come off the strip and be replaced at a different position, the sensor will send the new positional data without the need to re-reference the axis. The system is totally wear and maintenance free, and the sensor is sealed to IP67.
