Absolute Rotary Encoder
POSITAL’s IXARC SIL 2-certified absolute rotary encoder is available in a wide range of mechanical configurations.
POSITAL IXARC family of absolute rotary encoders now includes models. The new encoders feature redundant measurement elements and are certified to Safety Integrity Level 2 (SIL 2) and Performance Level d (PL d). They feature a PROFINET communications interface and support the PROFIsafe protocol. PROFIsafe-based control systems are used for critical applications such as industrial robots or material handling equipment, where loss of control could result in hazardous situation. The encoder transmits a safety position and/or safety velocity value. They count up to 4,096 absolute turns and a maximum resolution of 13 bit real time. The new models include an accuracy of up to ±0,2%. Clamp, synchro and blind-hollow flanges are available. The SIL 2-certified absolute rotary encoder is available in a wide range of mechanical configurations. Saltwater-resistant aluminum housings make these devices suitable for use in harsh marine environments.
