Exhibition at the Automation Industry Exhibition
At the Automation Industry Exhibition, a major manufacturer of optical scales has launched a new incremental optical scale product for linear axes, which not only has a great installation tolerance, but also has a working speed of 30 m/s. This optical ruler series products can directly generate digital signal output from the reading head, so there is no need to connect an external interface, thereby reducing the space occupied. Machine assembly time is the most critical, and reducing component installation time can shorten the time required for pre-work, thereby increasing profitability.https://www.zinde.com.tw/
The optical scale series adopts a 50μm grating pitch. Due to the unique optical design of the optical scale, this grating pitch can achieve larger installation tolerances and higher working speeds. With a number of advanced design features, the ability to prevent dust and pollution is excellent. The reading head uses a well-received filter optics group, which can dilute the influence of pollutants on the scale cycle, and effectively filter non-periodic features to further strengthen the measurement signal.
The optical ruler uses a brand-new sensor to provide a third-level signal filtering function, which helps to eliminate non-harmonic signal frequencies caused by contaminants on the optical ruler. These signal adjustment functions are combined with each other to ensure low interpolation error and minimize signal variation under the influence of pollution. It helps to speed up the mass production line and save considerable time and cost.
