New RSF sealed encoders for metrology
-Provide high system accuracy and thermal stability-
RSF Elektronik MSA 7/8 linear encoders for high-end metrological position feedback. Available from HEIDENHAIN CORPORATION in North America.
Schaumburg, Illinois, May 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – RSF Electronics is proud to announce the launch of a new series of sealed linear encoders for high end metrology applications. Offered by the parent company HEIDENHAIN COMPANY in North America, these MSA 7xx/8xx model encoders offer easy, high-quality mounting solutions that are well suited for use on MMT, Optical comparators, Video measuring machines, among other types of measuring equipment.
The MSA 7/8 series encoders are ideal for high-end metrology on or off the shop floor due to the high signal quality and long term stability provided through the integration of HSP 1.0. (HEIDENHAIN signal processing). HSP1.0 provides in-line gain and offset stabilization, ensuring the best possible signals are generated from the 20 Âµm array of the scale inside the aluminum extrusion, even in the presence of contamination .
The thermal behavior of the MSA 7/8 is adjustable based on variable fasteners, allowing different thermal fixed points, each of which provides a known temperature rise characteristic for compensation within the control system. This is essential for metrology applications as the negative impact of thermal expansion / contraction on measurements can be eliminated.
The MSA can also be delivered with glass or glass ceramic (Robax) substrates, offering a standard and low CTE (coefficient of thermal expansion) offering, depending on the needs of the application. The MSA 7/8 encoders also offer high reproducibility thanks to the force-free compensation of the mounting tolerance. The MSA 7xx encoder offers a fixed connection cable, while the MSA 8xx connection is detachable.
RSF Elektronik encoders are available in North America through parent company HEIDENHAIN CORPORATION, and commonly found in the metrology, machine tool and semiconductor industries. More information can be found via contact via https://www.heidenhain.us/contact-us/
