First select the type of movement you want to measure. Here you can choose between a linear or rotational movement.
The position detection can be incremental or absolute. The incremental measuring method provides a relative position as well as direction of movement, which requires an assignment to a reference point (starting point) at the beginning of the measurement. This is done by homing the axis. The absolute measuring method provides concrete position information at any axis position. A reference run at the beginning of the measurement is not necessary.

When assembling body parts in automotive manufacturing, precise distances and angles must be maintained between the individual components to ensure correct alignment and fit. These processes require maximum precision and accuracy to ensure high quality of the end products.
Robots are very often used to optimize these assembly processes in this way. Rotary measuring systems, such as the Kit R4 from NUMERIK JENA, are used in robot arms to ensure precise positioning of the body parts. With the help of these measuring systems, the motion sequences required to position the body part at the intended location can be controlled precisely and quickly.
Its extremely compact design as well as many configuration options make this product series an all-round talent for incremental path measurements
The LIA series offers a wide range of application possibilities and is configurable with expandable features such as optional switching sensors
The outstanding characteristics of this encoder are based on a combination of incremental and absolute measuring technology
