Our range of draw wire encoder

Any encoder driven by a draw wire can replace a standard encoder in many applications. Lika Electronic offers a complete range of draw-wire encoders. They can be optical or magnetic, with incremental, absolute or analogue outputs (a potentiometer can also be incorporated).

• Measuring lengths can be 300 mm (0.984 ft), 1 m (3.28 ft), 1.5 m (4.92 ft), 2 m (6.56 ft),
  5 m (16.4 ft), 10 m (32.8 ft), and longer, up to 50 m (164 ft)
• Any type of encoder can be integrated: incremental, absolute, fieldbus, Ethernet, analogue
  (including potentiometer), ATEX, special models for individual applications
• Resolution down to 0.01 mm / 10 µm
• Speed up to 10 m per second / 32.8 ft per second

Typical applications are mobile equipment and construction machinery (outriggers, stabilisers, arches), telescopic cranes, excavators, forklifts, guided vehicles, agricultural and forestry machinery and equipment, scissor lifts, car lifts, loading platforms, warehouses, electro-medical equipment (scanners, operating and examination tables, hospital beds, dentist's chairs, etc.).

SME9 incremental encoder, accurate and versatile for linear and rotary applications

SME9 high-speed incremental encoder from Lika Electronic is perfect for demanding motion control needs in linear motors and printers and offers an accuracy better than 10 µm at very fast speeds up to 100 m/s.

Rotary and linear encoders with Panasonic® RS-485 interface

Rotary kit encoders AMM36, AMM5B, and AMM80 as well as linear encoders SMA2 and SMA21 from Lika Electronic can be equipped with the Panasonic® RS-485 interface in addition to the well-established SSI and BiSS C-mode interfaces.

The main advantages of integrating the Panasonic® interface are full compatibility, simplified connection, and ease of interfacing with PLCs, controllers, drives, and several industrial feedback devices from Panasonic®.

Products with integral Panasonic® RS-485 interface are most popular in Asia but widespread all over the world and are typically used in linear motors, cutting machines, product handling equipment, pick & place lines, and storage systems.
