Leine & Linde RLA 4000 absolute encoder series designed for toughest environments.
Leine & Linde released its RLA 4000, designed for tough environments, particularly of use as part of roll gap regulation in the steel industry. The linear encoders come with an heat-resistant encapsulation and absolute inductive scanning. Due to this unique design and capability, the series doesn’t need to be installed inside a cylinder. Additionally, the RLA 4000 series provides absolute position values directly to the PLC, and the encoder cannot lose track of its position, even though a power cycle. The linear sensor comes with measurement lengths up to 260mm and output interfaces of SSI or EnDat. Using a gateway, PROFINET, PROFIBUS and EtherNet/IP interfaces are also available.
