LINEAR SCALE FOR MINIATURIZATION APPLICATIONS
Heidenhain Corp. has announced the LIDA 500 series 20-√Ç¬µm incremental linear scales. Units offer measuring steps of 1 √Ç¬µm to 0.1 √Ç¬µm. The LIDA 583 and LIDA 573 have two smaller scanning fields with double-field scanning. In order to compensate for the known disadvantages of small scanning fields, the signal is corrected online electronically, thus producing better signals, the company says.
