Readheads and Scales

Description of the modular housing concept


Additional tools and modules for diagnostics, adjustment and signal interfacing

METIRIO® is a state of the art high precision encoder that’s been designed and manufactured to meet the most stringent market requirements for closed-loop Nano-positioning. The device development has been derived from longstanding experience in product and market analysis, addressing substantial design rules to satisfy today’s technical challenges. It features maximum miniaturization, high resolution and speed. The read-head exhibits a modular structure and can be supplied as an OEM product or mounted in custom-made metal casings to facilitate the integration process and operability. Metirio sets a new benchmark in low power consumption and UHV deployment. The graphical user interface incorporates smart functions to ensure simplified parameter settings, whereas all parameters can be saved to internal memory for possible retrieval. It’s been engineered to measure any reflective incremental scale with 20 µm pitch including detection of reference marks.
