Linear motion guide bearings include position feedback

Schneeberger's miniature recirculating linear motion guides are now available with a directly integrated optical encoder to combine load carrying, precision alignment and position feedback functions in one convenient package. The new Miniscale system is available in the UK from LG Motion.


The upper surface of the Miniscale guideway includes a durable, micro-etched scale which is read and interpolated by a very small reading head mounted on the moving carriage. Cabling is completed with a flexible printed circuit board with length to match the travel range With a direct TTL-level quadrature output, the Miniscale's resolution is 1MICROm with a repeatability of +/-2MICROm. Overall accuracy is with +/-3MICROm up to 30mm of travel and +/-10MICROm up to 300mm travel. The Miniscale is available in four standard rail widths of 7, 9, 12 and 15mm with matching carriages for dynamic load capacity to 3680N. For dynamic loads up to 4750N and improved offset load capability, four 'wide' rails with increased bearing distribution are available in widths of 14, 18, 24 and 42mm. Maximum rail lengths are 760mm to 960mm with longer upon request.
