No more wiring is necessary! This battery powered LCD-Indicator is already combined with a magnetic sensor. The system is predestined for mounting on movable slides and stop-systems. With a good battery the system's able to work up to 12 months in continuos operation. The incremental measuring system Z15 measures movements directly, that means there are no pitch or measuring errors due to mechanical play. The distance between magnetic sensor and magnetic tape may be up to 0.8 mm's without impairing system accuracy.
