July 6, 2018 - The BML SF2 system from Balluff provides 12 micrometer system accuracy at gap distances up to 1.0 mm and a maximum working gap distance of 1.8 mm. The BML SF2 system is a linear position feedback solution designed for demanding applications such as cutting and forming machinery, X-Y positioning, and direct feedback on electric drives. The BML SF2 incremental encoder system is available with industry-standard A/B/Z quadrature or analog sine/cosine interfaces and is available in operating lengths of up to 48 meters. The magnetic tape can be ordered in bulk and cut to length per application requirements. Additional features of the BML SF2 linear encoder system include:
- Metal sensor housing to allow installation in tight spaces
- Integrated status LED on sensor head to provide indication of status during installation, start-up, and normal operation
- Non-contact action for wear-free operation
