Magnetic incremental linear sensor, using coded tape for feedback.
Eltra’s metric wheels series has been designed for specific industrial applications where you need to measure linear movement (i.e. continuous sheet cutting machines of wood, textiles, glass, etc.). Precise reading and high-stress resistance are the main features of these encoders. The body is entirely designed of aluminium and mounted using an oscillating arm pivoted on the axial. It comes with an integrated self-lubricating compact box to assure a long operation period without any maintenance. The weighty metric wheel keeps a stable contact with the material, allowing an accurate measurement of both length and speed. The wheel surface can be in crossed-knurl aluminium, special anti-oil or anti-slide rubber.
