Linear encoder Optira series

Product description

Optira encoder offers up to 5 nm resolution with all interpolation, AGC, and signal processing performed in the sensor head. No additional PCBs, adapters, or dongles are required for operation. Patented PurePrecision™ optical technology and industry-leading alignment tolerances make Optira’s miniature sensor head extremely easy to install. Optira’s two mounting options, industry standard analog and digital incremental encoder outputs, and standard FFC connector provide the durability and flexibility needed by designers of miniature precision motion control systems.

Optira is engineered to deliver industry-leading low power consumption. A 3.3 VDC version is offered, making it ideal for battery-powered precision instruments. Compatibility with wide range of linear and rotary gratings and scales enables a miniature installation footprint.
