Products that enable everything from improved manufacturing and machining processes to safer, more reliable medical diagnostics. They strive to perfect the delicate balance of cutting-edge technology with universal compatibility.

They continue to make improvements in its product line every day. These products provide solutions in the following industries: Oil & Gas, Semiconductor and Electronics, Quality Control, General Automation, Medical, and Machine Tool ….

Heidenhain Linear encoders are the used throughout the world. The more popular Linear Encoders are the LC 185, LC 195F, LC 485 and LC 495F. These are drop-in replacement for the LC 183, LC 193F, LC 483 and LC 493F. The functional safety option is becoming more popular in these series. However, there are numerous other models of encoders that they offer that will meet your needs. These other series include the LB 382/382C, the LF 185/185C, the LS 187/187C, the LS 487 and LS 487C

Angle encoders, encoders for servo drives, modular angle encoders and standard rotary encoder are part of Heidenhain product line. They offer a wide range of sizes, outputs and include absolute or incremental.

The angle encoders include the RCN, ROD. RON and ECN 200 series. The RCN comes in 3 sizes and are an absolute encoder with integral bearing. The outputs available are Siemens, Fanuc and Mitsubishi. The RON series has 4 sizes and are with integral bearing and a integrated stator coupling. The RON series is an incremental have outputs of TTL, 1Vpp and 11uApp. The ROD series comes in 2 sizes, are incremental with integral bearing and require a coupling for mounting.

In addition, Heidenhain offer a wide variety of length gauges. They include the following series: ACANTO, SPECTO, METRO, and CERTO. Each series come in different travels, outputs, and accuracy. However, the most popular length gauge is the SPECTO series.  We stock numerous SPECTO gauges in our inventory for quick delivery.

As far as Gaging displays the Gage-Chek is very popular for multiple probe applications.  They support numerous types of probes, Half-Bridge, LVDT, TTL, and able to interface with brands such as Solartron, TESA, Mahr and Marposs. In addition, they also offer the ND280, ND287 series for 1 or 2 gauge applications. Recently they introduced the new GAGE-CHEK 2000.

So if you have an application that requires durability, reliability, and accuracy then look no further Heidenhain.  There United States headquarters is located in Schaumburg, IL.  They have been in this market and their engineers have seen just about every application imaginable.
