Acu-Rite, part of the Heidenhain family of companies, is a global leader in precision measurement technologies and systems including high-quality digital readouts, precision glass scales, and CNC controls.
Acu-Rite precision glass scales, or encoders, withstand the elements of even the harshest machine shop environments. Built to resist changes in size, shape, or density due to temperature and humidity variations, this stability provides exceptional accuracy, resulting in tighter workpiece tolerances. ACU-RITE scales are available in travel lengths from 1 – 120 in. and in resolutions from 0.5μm (.00002 in.) to 5μm (.0002 in.).
ACU-RITE SEALED LINEAR ENCODER TYPES
SENC 50: A high performance SENC 50 is a compact, flexible and versatile precision glass scale linear encoder designed for applications involving limited or confined mounting spaces. An SENC 50 also withstands elements of contamination found in even the harshest machine shop environment. Every Acu-Rite precision glass scale incorporates Acu-Rite’s tradition of quality, reliability, durability and dependability at an affordable price.
Features include a compact cross section, 5 to 0.5 Micron accuracy, measuring lengths up to 500mm (20in.), comes standard with 4m (13ft.) armored cable. This is the direct replacement for the ENC 50.
SENC 150: The SENC 150 precision glass scale linear encoder incorporates the latest innovation in roller bearing technology for reduced backlash and greater scale travel life. This scale also features a highly integrated scanning sensor that provides even greater contamination resistance. The SENC 150 is designed to satisfy a wide range of application needs including EDMs, grinders, lathes, milling machines, and inspection equipment and can withstand elements of contamination found in even the harshest environment. Every Acu-Rite precision glass scale incorporates Acu-Rite’s tradition of quality, reliability, durability and dependability at an affordable price.
