The LMK-10x/1050x miniature scanning heads with remotely located signal conditioning electronics are best suited for limited space applications. The signal conditioning electronics are located within an oversized connector that can also be IP-67 rated. They can be combined with measuring scale types LMB-100 or LMB-400 (see page 9). The grating pitch must be the same for the scanning head and the grating scale.

As an option, an integrated limit switch function can be realized. These read heads are IP-67 rated and are insensitive to environmental pollution like grease, oil, coolant, dust and dirt.
