A new pocket guide highlights Renishaw’s range of encoders, including incremental and absolute versions of both magnetic and optical encoders, and products for ultra-high vacuum (UHV) applications.

Offering a simple introduction to Renishaw’s product range, this pocket-sized guide is designed to be a useful reference source for customers looking for a competitive advantage for their machines.

This handy guide summarises key system benefits, enabling motion system designers to select the most suitable encoder, whether they are an experienced user considering upgrades, or designing a system with an encoder for the first time.

Renishaw’s flagship encoder system, Resolute, is featured in the guide.

An absolute, fine-pitch, optical encoder system, Resolute has excellent dirt immunity and an impressive specification.

Offering 1Nm resolution at 100m/s, it breaks new ground in position feedback.

Another highlight of the guide is the compact Tonic optical encoder, which offers speeds up to 10m/s and resolutions down to 1Nm.

Tonic is also available with Fastrack, a track-mounted linear scale that is claimed to combine +/-5um/m accuracy with the ruggedness of stainless steel and the quick and easy installation of a carrier-type encoder system.

For harsh environments and extreme service, Renishaw offers a range of rugged linear and rotary magnetic encoders designed to be highly resistant to shock, vibrations, pressure and chemicals.

Magnetic encoder ICs and encoder modules are also covered.

Renishaw

A world leader in engineering technologies, Renishaw’s core skills in measurement and precision machining serve sectors as diverse as dimensional metrology, spectroscopy, machine calibration, motion control, dentistry and surgical robotics.

Sensors for co-ordinate measuring machines (CMMs) are an industry standard, from basic touch-trigger probes through to automated stylus and probe changers, motorised indexing probe heads, and revolutionary five-axis measurement systems.

Machine probes for CNC machine tools allow automated tool setting, workpiece set-up, in-cycle gauging and part inspection. Products include laser tool setters, contact tool setters, tool breakage detectors, touch probes and high accuracy inspection probes.

For motion control, Renishaw supplies laser encoders, optical linear encoders, optical angle encoders, optical rotary encoders, magnetic rotary encoders, magnetic chip encoders and magnetic linear encoders.

To analyse the static and dynamic performance of position-critical motion systems, Renishaw’s laser interferometer and environmental compensation system offers a linear measurement accuracy of 0.5 ppm, readings of up to 50 kHz and a linear measurement speed of up to 4 m/s, with a linear resolution of 1nm.

Renishaw’s Raman spectroscopy products exploit the Raman effect to identify and characterise the chemistry and structure of materials. A diverse range of analytical applications include pharmaceutical, forensic science, nanotechnology, biomedical and semiconductors.
