Model LCE Linear Cable Encoder



The Linear Cable Encoder (LCE) provides a low cost alternative for obtaining accurate linear measurements. As opposed to typical rotary shaft style encoders, the LCE has a retractable stainless steel cable, allowing for numerous and unusual measuring configurations. Placing the LCE away from harsh environmental conditions, while still providing precise measurements, gives the LCE an outstanding advantage over shaft style encoders. Installation is easy with a variety of cable exit directions, and perfect parallel alignment is no longer necessary. The heart of the LCE is the 716 Series encoder. The 716 provides a reliable digital pulse train in quadrature format, with resolutions down to 0.1mm. The small overall size, a variety of resolutions, and choice of connector types, makes the versatility of the LCE unbeatable!
