Position determinaton of trolleys

           The KH53 linear encoder operates magnetically and is the ideal solution for use in harsh environments and over long distances. The position data of the traveling crane determined by the KH53 makes it possible to stack containers with as little offset as possible.

  • Non-contact length measurement – maintenance-free, rugged, long service life
  • High reproducibility (0.3 mm / 1 mm), high system resolution (0.1 mm)
  • SSI and PROFIBUS interfaces
  • Determination of absolute position
  • Measuring lengths of up to 1,700 m possible
  • Can be used in harshest ambient conditions
  • High traversing speeds of up to 6.6 m/s
  • Distance tolerance between read head and measuring element: up to 55 mm ± 20 mm possible
