Heidenhain Expands MRS Angular Encoders to Improve Robot Arms
October 12, 2021
Heidenhain has announced a new MRS encoder module series for robot arms, with redesigned embedded bearings to better withstand outside tilting forces. The new compact and all-inclusive design also significantly simplifies the installation process, the company said.
The new MRS 2280 and 2281 encoder modules are specially designed for use in tilting and rotary axes with high tilting rigidity bearings, making them ideal for measuring arms and measuring robots, the company said. The MRS 2200 series provides options with an easily mountable ultra-compact design, system accuracy of ±10 inches, and tilt resistance of up to 52 Nm/mrad tilt resistance.
Like Heidenhain’s other angle encoder modules, each of the new MRP 2200 encoder modules includes a high accuracy angle encoder and robust embedded bearings that form one compact module. Because the bearing and encoder components are already aligned and adjusted, builders can forego having to make those typical complex adjustments, reducing their installation efforts up to 70%, the company said.
