RSF Elektronik (Schaumburg, IL) has announced the launch of a newly designed sealed linear encoder series for high-end metrology applications. Offered through parent company HEIDENHAIN CORPORATION in North America, these MSA 7xx/8xx model encoders offer high quality and easy mounting solutions that are well suited for use on CMMs, Optical Comparators, Video Measuring Machines among other types of measuring equipment.
The MSA 7/8 series encoders are ideal for high-end metrology on or off the shop floor because of the high signal quality and long-term stability provided thanks to its integration of HSP 1.0. (HEIDENHAIN Signal Processing). HSP1.0 supplies online gain and offset stabilization, ensuring the best possible signals are generated from the 20µm grating of the scale inside the aluminum extrusion, even in the presence of contamination.
