BOGEN and its US subsidiary exhibit at the AUTOMATE show in Chicago, IL from 3rd to 6th April 2017. AUTOMATE is the broadest automation solutions event in North America. The X-class product line is the main focus at BOGEN´s stand. The X-class products are an innovation result from the tuMaPos project. They were launched at SPS IPC Drives in November 2016. The X-class encoders are based on a pole pitch of 80 micron and achieve system accuracies of 5 micron and better. They represent a true innovation in magnetic measurement technology, which reaches a lot of optical measurement systems in its accuracy. Typical application areas of the X-class products are highly accurate measurement challenges in automation and robotics.
