Schneeberger's Monorail Guideway based AMS Absolute provides encoder feedback without the need for external tapes, scales or scan heads. The IP68 magnetic scan head is carriage mounted and reads the magnetic scale, encoded for absolute output, directly on the guide. The magnetic scale is covered and laser welded in the groove of the guide making the entire system IP68 rated. Completely protected from coolant and dirt, the AMS Absolute is submersible. Ball Monorail sizes 15 - 14, Roller Monorail sizes 25-100. Available for all sizes and types of carriages from flanged to compact. Absolute encoding is compatible with most contemporary control systems. Resolutions from 5.0 um to 0.1 um with either digital or analog output.
