HEIDENHAIN announced that its absolute LC 115 and LC 415 sealed linear encoders are now available in lengths up to 4240 mm with double sealing lips extrusions that ensure high vibration resistance. An improve upon its LC xx3 series, the LC 115/415 are designed for purely-serial absolute systems. In addition, the resolution of the LC 115 and LC 415 was increased from 5 nm to 1 nm, compared to past LC xx3 series. The first product in the series is the safety-related, purely-serial Endat 2.2 (up to 16 MHz) encoder version. Soon new interfaces can also be paired with these encoders such as from Fanuc (ai), Siemens (DRIVE-CLiQ) and Mitsubishi (High Speed Interface up to 5 MHz). In addition to safe processing of the position values, these encoders provide fault exclusions for the loosening of the mechanical coupling for various types of mounting.
