POSITAL IXARC rotary sensors now available with stainless steel housings and IP69K seals.
POSITAL announced that its IXARC rotary sensors are now available with V4A-rated stainless steel housings and IP69K-level environmental seals for the food and beverage industries. The stainless steel housings are also available in explosion-proof (ATEX-rated). The company’s encoders are available with a variety of output interfaces, ranging from analog to industrial Ethernet. The analog-output devices (also known as programmable potentiometers) are designed to function as a ‘drop-in’ replacement for conventional multi-turn potentiometers in simple control systems. Industrial Ethernet connectivity includes EtherNet/IP. POSITAL EtherNet/IP connected rotary sensors are ODVA-approved and are available in single or multi-turn versions with 16-bit resolution (65,536 steps/turn).
