Linear Encoder with Cable-Free Readhead
Kappasense’s FREEe™ is a linear encoder technology platform in which the readhead is a passive device weighs only 3 grams. Due to it’s Passive, Cable-less characteristics, moving Cables are not requiered! All the encoder cabling is static and connected to the scale.
A primary factor of concern in linear motion systems is the robustness of the cables that are connected to the moving element. The FREEe™ solution enhances machine reliability by obviating the need for moving encoder cables.
In addition, KappaSense’s absolute capacitive linear encoders offer wide mechanical tolerances & Harsh Environment operation which makes it suitable for myriad applications.
Kappasense FREEe™ platform can offer the ability to implmement multiple number of Read-heads on a single Linear Scale, Thus, giving the ability to control more than 1 load on the same axis with a single encoder.
