Long measuring lengths
The LB 382 linear encoder can be up to 3 m long with a single-section housing and up to 72 m long with a multi-section housing. In all lengths, the LB 382 features excellent dynamic performance, high reliability, and high accuracy across its entire measuring range.
Multiple housing sections can be joined together to form long measuring lengths. A steel scale tape is drawn through them and secured to the machine bed at both ends of the encoder. Due to the design, scanning is performed with the housing at a neutral range of tilt, thus preventing inaccuracy at the section joints.
