Balluff SGA encoder series features Drive-Cliq interface.
Balluff released its SGA series of BML absolute magnetic encoders that feature Drive-Cliq interface that integrates with Siemens controller environments. The controller automatically detects the sensor and its basic settings. Since the system works magnetically, it is insensitive to temperature change, dirt or wear. The compact measuring system features a read distance of 1.3mm, continuous plausibility checking and automatic condition monitoring, as well as status LEDs and diagnostic functions. The linear measuring system is accurate to ± 12µm and a resolution of 1µm and is suitable for measuring lengths up to 48 meters.
