Posital's IXARC rotary encoders provide absolute position with no battery backup.
Posital’s IXARC rotary encoders dedicated to Zones 2 & 22 are ATEX compliant and can operate safely in atmospheres where there are potentially dangerous levels of explosive gasses or dust (3G and 3D). These devices can be delivered with either programmable incremental or absolute output. The rotary encoders provide absolute position with no battery backup. The housing material comes in Aluminum or Stainless Steel (303 AISI and 316L AISI on request). There is a large variety of mechanical combinations available and communication interfaces include CANopen, DeviceNet, Profibus, SSI, ProfiNet, & Incremental.
