Position measurement

  • Incremental linear encoder (optional with stepper motor variants)
  • Noncontact optical reference and limit switches


  • 2-phase stepper motor or closed-loop DC motor
  • Backlash-compensated ball screws


Provided that the controller is ordered at the same time as the positioner, all cables required for operation with the recommended controller are included in the scope of delivery (exception: ACS controller). The cable length is 3 m. Cables for connecting to ACS controllers or other controllers can be ordered as accessories.
