The SHG-TC is part of the distance-coded family of encoders. Distance-coded encoders allow for absolute position to be determined after a maximum of 20mm of movement. The coded sequence within the scale allows for the calculation of reference marker positions which conform to the requirements of most control systems capable of processing RS422 incremental signals with Distance-coded reference marks.

Note: Prices include scale, reader head, scale support brackets. *Contact us for travels not shown.

Additional Options

The Newall Advantage

  • IP67 rating (NEMA 6)
  • Withstands dust, dirt, oil and other harsh environmental conditions
  • No mechanical wear characteristics
  • Requires no cleaning or maintenance
  • High tolerance to shock and vibration
  • High reliability


Quick and Easy Installation

The design of these linear encoders allow installment in almost any position, unlike glass-scale linear encoders, which usually need to be installed with the lip seal facing downwards to prevent contamination. Self-aligning fixing brackets allow virtually effortless scale mounting, needing only a single hole for each set of brackets.
