The SMAC SLE-LI series linear encoder can be considered as a drop-in replacement for the JENA LIK Linear encoder. This model is a miniature non-contacting high-resolution incremental linear encoder, which delivers two count channels in quadrature (called A and B) as output signals.

The two output waveforms are 90 degrees out of phase and indicate both the position and the movement direction: when Channel A leads Channel B, for example, then the movement is from left to right of the scale when viewing the pattern side of the scale. Otherwise, if B leads A, then the displacement is in the opposite direction.
