FMAX2 | FMAX3 ideally suited for motorfeedback

The magnetic absolute measuring system FMAX2 is designed for measuring lengths up to 192 mm or as FMAX3 up to 240 mm as well as for rotary applications with an outer diameter of approx. 61 mm (FMAX2) or 80 mm (FMAX3). 

  • magnetic absolute measurement with up to 19 bit resolution - linear or rotary
  • ideal for motor feedback systems
  • two versions for different measuring lengths (FMAX2: 192 mm / FMAX3: 240 mm or diameter (FMAX2 ∅ 61 mm, FMAX3 ∅ 80 mm)
  • additional incremental output signals (HTL, TTL or SIN/COS) optionally available
  • non-contact, wear-free magnetic measuring principle
  • quick and easy installation
