Angle encoder modules from HEIDENHAIN are combinations of angle encoders and high-precision bearings that are optimally adjusted to each other. They are characterized by their high degree of measuring and bearing accuracy, their very high resolution, and the highest degree of repeatability. The low starting torque and the consistent moment of friction permit very smooth movement. Due to the design as highly integrated composite components, handling and installation is very simple. Significantly fewer components are required than in conventional solutions. This not only allows a space-saving installation, but also offers advantages regarding the rigidity of the connection. The large hollow shafts provide additional advantages.
