Renishaw Compact digital encoder
The Vionic series ultra-high accuracy, supercompact all-in-one digital encoder family brings together Renishaw’s filtering optics with a custom interpolation and monitoring ASIC. Customers can choose between two readhead variants. Standard Vionic features a sub-divisional error (SDE) of <±30 Nm, a range of available resolutions from 5 µm to 20 Nm and speeds beyond 12 m/s. Alternatively, customers can select VionicPlus with SDE to <±10 nm, low jitter to 1.3-Nm RMS and resolutions from 100 Nm down to 2.5 Nm. The encoders are available with the same linear and rotary (angle) scale ranges as the Tonic series, such that existing customers may choose to install Vionic as a drop-in replacement.
