POSITAL adds models to IXARC encoder line with compact housings.
POSITAL has added models of its IXARC rotary encoders with housings that are 27mm long and 36mm diameter. The encoders’ radial cable entry and shaft seal have protection ratings of IP65. It also features a variety of flange and shaft configurations. The added encoders are based on POSITAL’s magnetic measurement technology in both incremental and single-turn absolute versions. Absolute versions have resolutions of up to 16-bit and are available with analog, CANopen or SSI interfaces. Incremental variants are programmable; resolution can be set anywhere from one to 16,384 pulses-per-turn in software without requiring changes to the mechanical properties of the devices. Similarly, pulse direction and the output driver – either Push-Pull (HTL) or RS422 (TTL) – can be reset through software updates.
