Linear encoders
DAX®

Flexible linear encoder for countless industrial applications

Your Benefits

  • Easy integration into new and existing machine designs thanks to high system flexibility, low space requirements and customizable functions, such as backward compatibility with manufacturer-specific position magnets.
  • Low maintenance costs due to wear- and maintenance-free measurement principle
  • Absolute measurement without reference run
  • Intelligent condition monitoring enables predictive maintenance of machines
  • Fail-safe operation due to undervoltage control and integrated overvoltage protection, also making them suitable for areas susceptible to voltage supplies fluctuations.

    Overview

    Flexible linear encoder for countless industrial applications

    Linear encoders from the DAX® product family are well-suited for determining the absolute position of piston rods in hydraulic cylinders as well as linear movements in industrial plants. Thanks to the use of magnetostrictive technology, the encoder is completely wear- and maintenance-free. Individual configuration options ensure customized integration in nearly any application. Thanks to the flexible system architecture, the DAX® linear encoder enables properties such as backwards compatibility with manufacturer-specific position magnets. Other intelligent functions for condition monitoring allow for predictive maintenance, for example, and create transparency about the current machine condition. This minimizes unplanned downtime and increases efficiency.
