POSITAL offers more encoders and inclinometers able to withstand harsh environments.

POSITAL has expanded its product line to include more rotary encoders and inclinometers with the IP69K protection rating. To qualify for this rating, a device must be able to withstand water spray at pressures up to 10,000 kPa/1450 psi and temperatures up to 176 °F/ 80 °C) for at least two minutes. The sensors also come in a wider range of mechanical options and communications interfaces. In the case of encoders, this includes more shaft diameters and more flange types – hub and square. For both encoders and inclinometers, the range of available interfaces now includes analog, CANopen, J1939, SSI, Modbus and IO-Link. Incremental encodes are also available with HTL/TTL serial interfaces.
