Encoders of the METIRIOfamily are compatible with a broad variety of reflective scales. As long as the pitch equals 20 µm, the scales can be linear, circular or curved to convex shape. One read head can be used for all types of scales. SmarAct Metrology offers a variety of different scales:
Available on request:
- Lengths up to 2 m
- Tailored dimensions (such as length, width, thickness, diameter)
- Flexible curved material
- Different substrate material
- Special reference mark codes
|Optical Diameter dOC
|CPR: Counts per Revolution
Customer Specific Scales
Glass with reflective chrome coating is well suited for METIRIOencoder measuring scales. Due to its diversity, METIRIO also works with different materials and custom scale geometries tailored to end-users specific application, such as convex scales for goniometers.
Following some simple scale design rules, you might even use METIRIOwith your own scale designs or already existing scales. METIRIO is thus an easy replacement for established systems.
If you don’t have access to scale manufacturing capabilities, please contact us. We are happy to offer you a tailored scale design.
