Linear encoders

Measuring with absolutely no contact - with linear encoders from SICK

Linear encoders detect linear movements as absolute position values without making contact. No reference run is required for the wear- and maintenance-free encoders. Different constructions with high resolution and rugged design enable use in a wide range of applications and industries.
