HEIDENHAIN Introduces the LCxx6 Series

HEIDENHAIN, Schaumburg, Illinois, shares the latest generation of linear scales, the LCxx6 series. Designed with an optimized internal scanning system, this series is resistant to liquid contamination and is quickly becoming the industry standard for position measurement on machine-tool linear axes.

The LCxx6 series offers the same mounting profile as its LC 1×5 / LC 4×5 encoders, though the newest LC 116 and LC 416 offer a different internal optimized scanning system which makes them easier to deploy. This scanning design utilizes true optimized optics, which ensures clear imaging even with contamination and condensation! This eliminates many air-purge needs which reduces the CO2 footprint by 99%, thus raising the convenience and lowering the cost of Closed Loop position measurement. This new series closes the gap in performance in harsh environments when compared to inductive scanning.
