Renishaw provides high quality optical encoders, magnetic encoders and laser encoders with high accuracy, easier installation and superior reliability.
Renishaw rotary open optical encoder consists of a position measurement readhead and an accurate rotary scale marked either on the periphery of a ring or on the face of a disc.
Renishaw open encoders are exposed and have no external integrated enclosure. The advantages of Renishaw open optical encoders include the effective elimination of backlash, shaft wind-up (torsion) and other mechanical hysteresis errors.
Renishaw optical encoders FORTiS deliver high performance measurement in the harshest of environments, offering significant benefits over conventional systems. Renishaw optical encoders FORTiS-N have been designed with a more compact readhead in a narrower extrusion, making them ideally suited to applications in more confined spaces.
Renishaw laser encoders feature with high measurement resolution, low Sub-Divisional Error (SDE), flexible remote detector heads with fibre based beam delivery and long service life.
Renishaw magnetic encoders do a great job in linear and rotary position measurement at low-cost, with high reliability and capable of operating in harsh environments.
