QUANTiC encoder series

The QUANTiC encoder system integrates Renishaw’s filtering optics design and interpolation technology to create a super-compact, robust, incremental open optical encoder. QUANTiC encoders are easy to use with exceptionally wide installation and operation tolerances, along with built-in calibration functions.

QUANTiC readheads offer digital output and a new analogue output variant with a wide variety of configurations and linear or rotary scale options. Speeds up to 24 m/s can be achieved to meet the most demanding motion control requirements.

Detailed diagnostic information can be accessed by using the Advanced Diagnostic Tool ADTi‑100 and ADT View software during installation or for in-field diagnostics and fault finding.

VIONiC encoder series

The VIONiC encoder series is Renishaw’s highest performing incremental optical encoder. It provides direct digital position feedback with superior metrology, fast speeds and high reliability. The VIONiC readhead integrates Renishaw’s market proven filtering optics and advanced interpolation technology. This provides ultra‑low Sub-Divisional Error (SDE), excellent dirt immunity, and eliminates the need for additional adaptors or separate interfaces.

VIONiC readheads are compatible with a wide range of linear, partial arc and rotary scales, from low expansion ZeroMet, to high accuracy REXM rings. This makes it a versatile product suitable for a wide variety of applications, where metrology cannot be compromised.

Designed with intuitive auto-calibration mode, VIONiC readheads are easy to install. An optional Advanced Diagnostic Tool ADTi-100 is available for real‑time encoder data feedback during installation or for in-field diagnostics.
