Linear Scales ST422 Series 579-Compact Type

Series 579
  • The maximum response speed is 5000mm/s. (When resolution is 1μm and the minimum edge interval is 125ns)
  • Ultra-compact detector control unit allows use in applications where space-saving design is important.
  • The maximum effective measurement length of 3000mm enables use on large machines.
  • Simultaneous output of 2-phase square wave signals (maximum resolution: 0.2μm) and 2-phase sinusoidal wave signals (main signal: 40μm) is available.
  • LED display function for indicating signal errors.
  • Equipped with scale reference point output.
