Magnetic Reader-heads

All EMSi magnetic reader-head sensors come from our industrial portfolio and provide both performance and market leading accuracy. Having a custom-made, screened, encoder cable with twisted-pair signal cables (A, /A), (B, /B), (Z, /Z) and heavier power cores, they provide the highest level of noise protection for demanding applications.

With a fully machined body, including machined ferrule to hold either the CNC grade high-flex cable or conduit armour, they provide performance and robustness.

Most of our reader-heads implement TWO separate pickups to use our uniquely coded magnetic tape to provide a true incremental periodic reference every 50mm, as per performance optical scales. These same reader-heads can be used with our distance-coded tape for larger machines where the DRO, PLC or CNC can accept distance-coded inputs.
