Grid encoder

Eliminates static electricity

The company's contamination-resistant grid encoder is designed for use with the NanoGrid system. The entire grid surface can be set at a fixed electrical potential, thus eliminating static electricity and inhibiting particle accumulation. The encoder grid is reportedly an integral part of the company's ultra-precise position measurement systems. The systems use laser diffraction principles to encode the position of a glass scale or grid relative to a sensor head with sub-nanometer resolution.
