- Offer Profile
- Lika Electronic stands for
encoders and position measuring systems. Since its inception in 1982, Lika
Electronic develops and manufactures incremental and absolute, optical and
magnetic, rotary and linear encoders, incremental & absolute sensors, linear
and rotary incremental & absolute magnetic measurement systems, rotary
actuators, displays, signal converters and encoder interfaces.
Rotary incremental encoders
Rotary incremental encoders are designed in a myriad of mechanical and electrical configurations to meet the needs of the most diverse industries: the range includes light and industrial, heavy-duty and stainless steel, programmable and redundant, ATEX and special application encoder models. Optical and magnetic versions available.
Rotary absolute encoders
Whether you need standard electrical interface encoders (SSI, BiSS, analogue, parallel, ...) or Ethernet/fieldbus interface encoders (Profinet, EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT, POWERLINK, MODBUS TCP & RTU, CANopen, Profibus, ...), Lika provides multiple solutions suitable for the variety of industrial sectors. High resolution optical versions and general purpose magnetic versions available.
Bearingless and kit encoders
Lika Electronic develops and manufactures a wide range of in-stock and custom incremental and absolute encoders in either bearingless or kit configuration, they are expressly designed with minimum size for direct integration into motion control systems, motors, industrial robots and constricted spaces. Optical and magnetic versions available.
Heavy-duty & stainless steel encoders
Rugged construction and components, stainless steel enclosure, oversized bearings, special surface treatments, redundant and power circuits: heavy-duty encoders are designed to reliably operate under adverse climatic conditions and high stresses and to safely deal with critical tasks and harsh duty industrial applications. Optical and magnetic versions available.
Linear incremental encoders
Linear encoders boast great advantages. They are miniature and slim and can be easily encapsulated, the magnetic sensing technology is non-contact and virtually wear-free. They can achieve the highest IP ratings and are suitable to operate in the most critical conditions. Incremental range includes models for toothed profiles and racks and programmable versions.
Linear absolute encoders
SSI, BiSS and analogue linear encoders are more and more complemented by Ethernet and fieldbus models today. They can add a further incremental track for speed feedback in motor applications. Measuring length is up to 8.1 m / 319”, resolution is down to 1 µm. Minimum footprint, robustness, and high reliability are among their valuable strengths.
They are the all-in-one and cost-effective solution for flexible and efficient automatic size changeovers. BLDC motor, encoder, controller, and interface are all integrated in the single package. They are ideal to automate multi-axis systems and ensure quicker format adjustments, reduced downtime, and less waste materials. Available in four series with Profinet, EtherCAT, POWERLINK, Profibus, CANopen, and MODBUS interfaces.
Lika offers a comprehensive range of incremental and absolute draw-wire encoders with measuring lengths from 2 m / 78.74” up to 50 m / 164 ft. They are available in a full choice of incremental (programmable), electrical (SSI, analogue), Ethernet (Profinet, EtherCAT, POWERLINK), and fieldbus (CANopen, Profibus, DeviceNet) interfaces and provide resolutions down to 10 µm.
Displays & interfaces
They are designed to interface incremental and absolute encoders and translate their position information into linear or angular values (mm, inches, fractional inches, degrees). They can further convert, split, cross switch, scale, interpolate, and filter encoder signals according to needs. IFS10 is the safety monitor for encoder speed, standstill, and direction of motion in SIL3/PLe certified functional safety systems.
Lika offers a comprehensive range of couplings to meet a variety of solid shaft installations: the range includes couplings specific for encoders and motors, flexible and rigid couplings, transmission couplings, electrically insulated couplings, couplings for special environments, etc. High variety of coupling types (Oldham, Rubber, Bellows, Disk...) and fixing options (setscrew, clamping, key and clamping + key) available.
