In addition to accuracy and reliability, the mechanical and electronic connectivity of encoders is a key selection criterion to you. That’s why HEIDENHAIN offers encoders featuring both a wide variety of interfaces and identical mounting dimensions, thus allowing for a design that is at once standardized and independent of the subsequent electronics used.
Linear and angle encoders, as well as rotary encoders, are available with the serial interfaces of all common controls, including HEIDENHAIN, Siemens, Bosch, Fanuc, Panasonic, Mitsubishi, Yaskawa, and many more. EnDat and other interfaces with comprehensive diagnostic functions support the analysis of complex machines—an important contribution to Industry 4.0.
HEIDENHAIN will also present an encoder solution for highly accurate robots; this solution can increase the absolute positioning accuracy at the tool center point by seventy to eighty percent. The tasks of industrial robots can thus become more precise in assembly technology and in the machining of large workpieces.
