September 21, 2018 – Position and motion sensor specialist POSITAL has announced that its IXARC incremental encoders will be available with a special housing that features a cable entry angled at 45° to the device’s axis. This design combines features of both axial and radial cable entries in a single unit.
The encoder models have core magnetic measurement technology, with dynamic response. A variety of flange and shaft configurations are available. A water and dust-tight grommet around the cable entry ensures that these devices meet IP65 level ingress protection. The housing is 36mm in diameter and 32mm long.
IXARC incremental encoders are programmable: resolution can be set anywhere from one to 16,384 pulses-per-turn in software without requiring any changes to the mechanical properties of the devices. Similarly, pulse direction and the output driver – either Push-Pull (HTL) or RS422 (TTL) – can be defined through software parameters. Changes can be made in the field or in the shop using POSITAL’s UBIFAST programming tool.
