Sensors & Instrumentation - Linear Displacement - MAGLINE™ Systems


The MAGLINE™ system covers several families of products:
MAGLINE™ MICRO Incremental
MAGLINE™ Basic Incremental
MAGLINE™ Basic Absolute
MAGLINE™ MagScale™
MAGLINE™ MACRO
MAGLINE™ ROTO

MAGLINE™ Basic Incremental includes several units with battery backup which offer quasi-absolute performance during the battery life.

MagScale™ products are designed for stop position measurement. MagScale meters are battery operated and therefore do not require any wiring.

MAGLINE™ Basic Incremental
MAGLINE Basic is designed to handle the most day to day industrial measurement tasks required in woodworking, aluminium joinery and plastic industries and general manufacturing plant.
With resolutions of 1µm, repeat accuracies of 5µm and guaranteed absolute accuracy of 30µm over any length to 90m.

SIKO offer a complete linear measurement solution.
a) Stand-a-lone systems based on battery powered LCD meters
b) Mains powered systems with RS422 and RS 485 interface option for stand-a-lone and integrated control systems.
If you ever used an incremental encoder with PP or LD outputs you already know how to use linear and rotary MAGLINE. The signal outputs are the same except the MSK5000 they include programmable features. SO Easy.
All systems consist of a magnetically encoded strip (with optional protective covers), magnetic sensors, translation modules and display meters with optional RS422 / RS485 interface capability.
Under MAGLINE™ Accessories, profile rails and head carriers complete the offering.

Some of the systems offered, were first introduced several years ago.
Modern systems integrate the magnetic sensor and the translation module electronics, resulting in improved noise performance and longer cable runs. Magnetic readers with integrated translation module are designation MSKxxxx eg MSK5000/1.
