The magnetic measuring technology for Ultra High Vacuum apps
Capteurs, Capteur, Codeur
SMB UHV from Lika Electronic is the incremental encoder suitable for both rotary and linear position feedback in UHV applications where vacuum pressure is as low as 10-7 torr. It is the first encoder encompassing the magnetic technology instead of customary optical scanning for such use in vacuum chambers.
- appreciable 50% cost reduction;
- non-contact, maintenance-free and reliable operation;
- complete insensitivity to use under high vacuum;
- larger mounting tolerances which prevent the need for further adjustments after installation and set up.
Each component and material of SMB UHV has been especially designed and tested for use in vacuum chambers in order to reduce outgassing and contamination: sensing head enclosure and ring in stainless steel, appropriate surface treatments and coatings, special adhesives, Kapton wires are among the design cares taken to meet the demanding requirements of such critical environment.
Because of the use in limited space, also the readhead footprint has been shrunk to a minimum.
Typical applications under ultra high vacuum include electronics and semi-conductor industry, pick & place robots & manipulators, biomedical instruments, measuring equipment.
