Aurora, Illinois – Mitutoyo’s ABSOLUTE AT1100 is the latest generation of assembly-type linear scales that incorporate Mitutoyo’s electromagnetic induction technology to provide resistance against contaminants such as cutting fluids, oil, and water. The ABS AT1100 will be on display in booth E-5215 from Sept. 12-17, 2016, during the International Manufacturing & Technology Show (IMTS) at McCormick Place in Chicago.

The innovative shape and location of the detector track in the aluminum frame provides a highly effective defense against the contamination of the scale and sensor, even in harsh environments. The sensor-to-scale air gap is approximately 0.4mm, about 4x as wide as that of conventional optical or electromagnetic induction systems, thereby providing additional protection against dust or oil contamination.

ABS AT1100 linear scales are available up to an effective range of 3,040mm and are compatible with Fanuc Corp.’s serial interface and Mitsubishi Electric Corp.’s high-speed serial interface.

ABS AT1100 series scales are a special order item.
