Wire Draw Absolute Encoder Measures Lengths to 5 m with Resolution to 0.05 mm


SICK STEGMANN, INC. introduces BKS Wire Draw Encoders. The BKS series is a compact wire draw measurement system that includes an integrated absolute encoder to minimize the size of the unit. They are designed to provide high resolution (to 0.05 mm) position or distance information for linear measurement paths up to 5 m at speeds up to 3.5 m/sec, even under difficult mounting positions. BKS wire draw encoders are available with SSI or HIPERFACE interfaces as standard, and are available with a Profibus interface via an optional HIPERFACE Profibus adapter. They fulfill the demanding linear measurement requirements of a variety of automation applications including presses, punching and injection machines, storage technology, wood and sheet metal processing machines, machinery construction and medical technology, among others. Other length measuring systems require precise linear guidance. Not so with the BKS system, where the integrated absolute encoder counts the number of drum rotations, which is proportional to the length, and converts that information into a measurement signal.
