LIP 6000 Dplus series

Incremental linear encoders with very high accuracy

  • For high-accuracy linear axes up to 3040 mm long (primary axis)
    with feedback for ±2 mm orthogonal travel (secondary axis)
  • Very small measuring step (<172 pm)
  • High speed and position stability
  • Interface: EnDat 3

Multi-dimensional measurement 

The Dplus encoders from HEIDENHAIN can measure multiple degrees of freedom with respect to a single axis, allowing deviations in one axis to be measured and compensated for in a neighboring one.

Innovative scales

This scale contains two separate graduation tracks with diagonal graduation lines oriented at ±45°. This design allows a secondary measurement axis to be captured across the entire primary measuring length.

Fast and precise

Along with its high accuracy, the LIP 6031 Dplus also supports fast traversing motion. With measuring steps of down to 172 picometers and a traversing speed of up to 240 m/min, it's ideal for high-precision applications requiring strong dynamic performance.

Measure multiple degrees of freedom

The two separate graduation tracks on the Dplus scale allow up to three degrees of freedom to be measured when two scanning heads are used. This technology makes it possible to implement complex measuring tasks with a simple and compact encoder design.

EnDat 3 interface

The scanning head of the LIP 6031 Dplus encoder can measure two degrees of freedom at the same time. Thanks to the encoder's EnDat 3 interface, the two position values are transmitted to the downstream electronics over a single cable.

Integrated reference marks

Perform referencing on two measurement axes simultaneously. Both graduation tracks of the LIP 6031 Dplus include a reference mark, thus providing absolute position feedback for the encoder's primary and secondary measurement axes.

Product variants

Exposed linear encoders consist of a measuring standard and a scanning head. Please select these two components from the lists. For further advisory support, please contact our Sales department by phone or e-mail, or use our contact form.
