Product catalog and CAD files

Fewer components - less installation space - less costs

With the integrated measuring system IMScompact, the measuring sensor is fully integrated in the runner block - this not only saves a lot of installation space, but also budget, since there are no add-on parts. The IMScompact is suitable for numerous handling tasks in automation. It enables measurement lengths of up to 17,8 meters and is available for ball rail systems from size 15. The integration in the runner block also ensures a high level of EMC protection and thus offers you new possibilities for your automation solution in conjunction with linear motors.
