ACANTO / Absolute measuring sensor


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

ACANTO is an absolute measuring sensor for the use in automation and quality management. The high measuring accuracy afforded is not just fulfilled technically, but also communicated by its clear and precise design and the excellent manufacturing quality of the device. High quality materials and surface finishing as well as lasered logos and nameplates (no abrasion) additionally perform the requirements of the Heidenhain CI. The cable and compressed air feeding assure maximum accessibility when clamping the measuring sensor and therefore enable an ergonomic working situation.
