In addition to the read heads and interface modules, the other components of the WCS position encoding system also play an important role. The centerpiece of the system is the code rail. The code rail reaches lengths of 300 m and is made from either stainless steel or lightweight plastic laminate. The different mounting methods are of equal importance for the installation and attachment of the code rail.
Depending on the system (WCS2 or WCS3), you can select:
- WCS2 aluminum profile track (for WCS2…)
- WCS3 aluminum profile track (for WCS3…)
- Bracket mounting system (for WCS3…)
All system components are also available with a powder coating
for use in corrosive environments.
