As every year, we will exhibit at SPS IPC Drives in Nuremberg, the most important exhibition for the professionals in the Automation world.We are very happy to invite you to our booth 146 in hall 7A, with freshly baked waffles with cherries and cream!
Inclinometers with Dynamic Acceleration CompensationPOSITAL has introduced new versions of its TILTIX inclinometers that can provide reliable tilt measurement for moving equipment. These new devices use a combination of electro-mechanical accelerometers and gyroscopes to provide accurate measurements, even if the instruments are subject to strong accelerations.
Robust Kit EncodersPOSITAL’s new family of kit encoders provide the manufacturers of servomotors and other machinery with a rugged, accurate and cost-efficient means of building rotary position measurements into their products. The new kit encoders are based on POSITAL’s highly successful self-contained magnetic rotary encoders.
Electrical Resolution: 17 Bit Singleturn, Up to 32 Bit Multiturn
Safety EncodersSafety encoders offer the advantages of increased personnel safety, minimize the risk of machines malfunctioning and reduced development time. IXARC safety encoders are certified to Safety Integrity Level 2 (SIL 2) and Performance Level d (PL d).
POSITAL also offers redundant encoders which can reach a safety level of PL d, Cat. 3. These encoders consists of either two optical or one optical and one magnetic system and are available with SSI and CANopen communication interfaces.
High-Precision Magnetic Encoders with CANopen Interface
Rugged and Compact CANopen Encoders
POSITAL’s IXARC high-precision magnetic absolute rotary encoders are now available with CANopen interfaces. These new interface option is in addition to the previously announced SSI, EtherNet/IP, EtherCat, Powerlink, Profbus DP and Profinet interfaces. Together, this range of interface choices makes the rugged and compact IXARC encoders one of the most versatile devices of its type on the market.
Battery-free Wiegand Sensor Technology
Robust and Compact Housing
Singleturn Resolution Reaches 16 bit
Autobaud Detection Function Enables the Device to Directly Integrate on the Network
Status LEDs Can Simplify Installation and Diagnostics
POSITAL’s precision rotary encoders, first introduced in 2013, provided a significant step forward in encoder technology. With improved magnetic field measurement sensors and advanced signal processing techniques, POSITAL has been able to offer devices with accuracy and dynamic response characteristics that rivaled traditional optical encoders in smaller, more robust, more cost-efficient packages. Single- and multiturn models are available. For multiturn versions, the rotation counter is self-powered, with no need for backup batteries. Since the original rollout, POSITAL has worked to enhance the performance of these devices and expand the range of available communication interfaces.
Excellent Choice for a Variety of Industries
IXARC encoders with the CANopen communications interface are an excellent choice for applications in vehicles, mobile machinery, cranes, lifts and offshore equipment. The communication interface features the autobaud function, so these encoders can be directly connected to a CANopen network without the need to manually set transmission speeds. Diagnostic LEDs show device status. A variety of connection options are available, including cables of various lengths and radially or axially oriented M12 or M23 connectors. Housings with bus-in/bus-out connectors are available for applications where it is convenient to connect several devices in series (daisy chain).Read More about the CANopen Interface
Finding Easily the Right IXARC Sensor for Your Application
Wide Selection of Mounting Fixtures for Rotary Encoders
POSITAL offers a wide selection of accessories that simplify sensor installation and help ensure a long and reliable service lives for both for sensors and the machinery they are monitoring.
Mating connectors of different types and lengths are available to ensure reliable electrical connections. Using mounting accessories from POSITAL will minimize wear and tear on encoders and help ensure reliability and longevity. Interface modules and displays provide users way of monitoring sensor outputs at a convenient location close to where the sensor is mounted.
Different industrial environments pose different challenges, which is why POSITAL is continuously adding new accessories to its portfolio. The quality of the accessories can be as important as the quality of the encoder or inclinometer. This is why we encourage users to rely on field-tested POSITAL accessories.
