LinACE™ absolute InAxis™ linear shaft encoders measure exactly at the point of load

The system has an accuracy of ±5 µm and users can achieve full closed-loop control, significantly improving safety and performance. LinACE is a completely novel approach to linear position feedback which is designed and manufactured by Renishaw’s associate company RLS. The LinACE encoder comprises a solid steel shaft with fully-integrated scale and a sliding readhead…
