If the position of an axle is to be measured exactly, measuring scales must be fitted with enormous precision. Supporting sensor solutions have so far been difficult to integrate and were frequently very expensive. The easy to mount i³SAAC-Precision-System now solves this problem. It consists of two tried-and-tested standard MiniCODERs and the i³SAAC-Precision-Box for direct spindle mounting.
An advantage for the user is that identical encoder kits from Lenord+Bauer can be used in the motor spindle as a single solution for revolution counting and as a double-head version for high-precision positioning applications. This reduces the range of versions, and any MiniCODER high-speed solutions already present are retained.
The i³SAAC-Precision-Box is connected by means of a compact connector solution using two encoder kits mounted offset at an angle of 180° on the target wheel. The analogue signals they produce are processed and prepared in the box. This dynamically minimises the eccentricity error - also known as the long-wave error - even at high rotational speeds up to well over 50,000 rpm. Temperature signals from the spindle can likewise be connected in the box and looped through in a cable for further processing.
