High accuracy length gauge

May 31, 2013

Heidenhain has introduced the ACANTO 30xx, the newest product in the company’s line of high accuracy length gauges. The ACANTO 30xx features a 30 mm measuring stroke, recommended for measuring objects of multiple sizes or for applications that require a long travel. The ACANTO features an EnDat 2.2 serial interface that outputs absolute position data.  Upon power up, the ACANTO will know exactly where it is without needing to cross reference marks.  Datum information will also be stored with the gauge.  In addition, when used in combination with the GAGE CHEK digital readout, ND287 digital readout, or MSE 1000 multiplexor, diagnostic information of the ACANTO can be checked.  The online diagnostics ensure that the operator is always informed about the current condition of the length gauge.
