Combined mounting of 500 and 600 series encoders

When you want feedback on both speed and position, you may want to combine an incremental and an absolute encoder on the same axis. This was the case for one of our customers, designing a high-voltage switch for a power generation application.

To facilitate mounting of double encoders, Leine Linde designed a special cover for the RHA 596 encoder. The customer then mounted a 600 series encoder for absolute positioning onto the absolute 500 series encoder.

This duo-mounting solution can be applied for any 500 series encoder, either to add a 600 series encoder for precise position feedback – or for mounting a second 500 series encoder in an application where maximum uptime is critical and functional redundancy is required.

Leine Linde excels at customized solutions that solve problems or create additional value from our products. Do not hesitate to contact us for advice related to specific requirements!
