The sensor reads the scale in order to convert the encoded position into an analog or digital signal, which can then be decoded into position by a digital readout or motion controller.


Linear encoders are used:

  • Metrology instruments
  • Motion systems
  • High precision machining tools


Linear encoder products include:

  • Digital calipers 
  • Coordinate measuring machines
  • Stages
  • CNC mills
  • Manufacturing gantry tables
  • Semiconductor steppers
