Learn how to install the TONiC super-compact digital encoder readhead.
Please refer to the relevant TONiC installation guide for more information.
The TONiC encoder series is Renishaw’s super-compact, non-contact incremental optical encoder that offers speeds up to 10 m/s and, when combined with the Ti interface, resolutions down to 1 nm for both linear and rotary applications.
TONiC systems are quick and simple to install with wide set-up tolerances and calibration at the push of a button. TONiC's dynamic signal processing gives improved signal stability with ultra-low Sub-Divisional Error, high running speeds and compatibility with linear and rotary applications. This makes TONiC suitable for the highest of performance applications where speed and accuracy are crucial. TONiC UHV is available for ultra-high vacuum applications.
The Renishaw RKLC encoder scale is a narrow, low cross-sectional area stainless steel tape scale featuring 20 μm or 40 μm pitch incremental graduations. RKLC scale is installed onto the axis substrate by a self-adhesive backing tape and it is mastered to the machine substrate, giving improved metrology, when the scale ends are rigidly fixed to the substrate. The scale is compatible with Renishaw’s VIONiC™, TONiC™ and QUANTiC™ incremental encoder series.
