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.

The absolute encoders from NUMERIK JENA have a USB 2.0 interface which enables users to connect directly to a PC and thus use the ABSOFLEX software. The ABSOFLEX USB adapter is required for connecting the D-sub connecting element to a USB port.
The measuring systems shipped by NUMERIK JENA are tested and adjusted under ideal mounting conditions. The sensor modules from NUMERIK JENA also feature electronic adjustment. The measuring system can thus be optimally adapted to the respective mechanical conditions after mounting.
The ABSOFLEX diagnostic software and a driver package are provided for the LAK and Kit LA measuring systems.
