Re-Inventing the Rotary Encoder: The No-Compromise IXARC from POSITAL

Designers of motion control or industrial automation systems who need to measure the rotation of shafts or other mechanical components have had two types of rotary encoders to choose from. Encoders based on optical measurement techniques can provide high levels of precision and dynamic response, but are relatively bulky and can be unreliable in damp or dusty conditions. Magnetic encoders are typically more compact and rugged, but until now, have offered lower levels of precision and dynamic response. POSITAL has eliminated the need for compromise by developing a new generation of magnetic absolute and incremental encoders that match the performance of optical shaft-mounted encoders in all but the most demanding applications. The new magnetic IXARC encoders are compact, accurate, fast and tough enough for challenging environmental conditions.
