March 24, 2010—The Extreme 1000 series from Leine & Linde offers encoders for severe work environments. Available in North America through Heidenhain Corporation, the measurement and function range on this encoder is especially designed to meet the requirements of the steel, crane and mining machinery industries. The encoders stand up to extreme mechanical stress, vibrations and shock, as well as dusty environments with high temperatures.

The sturdy bearings and enclosure allow the 1000 series to achieve high durability in across applications. The enclosure is rated IP67 and protects the encoder's internal components from dust and liquids. Stainless steel housing is available as a special option.

Different incremental and absolute versions are available, and a combination of the various encoder types can be integrated in the same 1000 series product. Absolute pulse encoders with PROFIBUS interface are now capable of enduring tough industrial environments for the first time using the 1000 series encoder. The absolute variants are available with interfaces that include SSI, EnDat, CANopen, DeviceNet or with a parallel output with resolutions up to 25 bit.
