Heidenhain's redesigned MRS encoder module seriesClick image to enlarge

Heidenhain has expanded and redesigned its MRS 2200 series of encoder modules for robot arms with redesigned embedded bearings to better withstand outside tilting forces.

The company says the new compact and all-inclusive design also significantly simplifies installation.

The new MRS 2280 and 2281 encoder modules have been designed for use in tilting and rotary axes with high tilting rigidity bearings, making them ideal for measuring arms and measuring robots.  Overall, the MRS 2200 series provides options with an easily mountable ultra-compact design, system accuracy of ±10”, and tilt resistance of up to 52 Nm/mrad tilt resistance.

As with Heidenhain’s other angle encoder modules, each of the new MRP 2200 encoder modules consists of a high-accuracy angle encoder and robust embedded bearings that form one compact module. Because the bearing and encoder components are already ideally aligned and adjusted, builders can forego having to make complex adjustments, which the company says can reduce installation effort by as much as 70 per cent.
