The Heidenhain LC 485 is an absolute linear encoder with a small cross section and a slimline scale housing,
ideal for limited installation space. Absolute linear encoders of the LC 400 series provide the absolute
position value without requiring any previous traverse.
Using a mounting spar makes the installation of slimline encoders easy. It can be fastened as part of the machine assembly process and the encoder is simply clamped on during final mounting. The easy exchange also facilitates easier servicing. The high accuracy and defined thermal behavior make these encoders especially well suited for use on numerically controlled machine tools.
