POSITAL has introduced its IXARC hybrid encoders combine incremental and absolute rotation measurement capabilities in a single, compact and highly robust package.

  • Absolute functionality rovides control system with an accurate report of the rotational angle and rotation-count at a specific point in time, which is well suited for many machinery positioning tasks
  • Incremental function provides a signal pulse each time the encoder shaft rotates by a specified angle
  • Dynamic response makes a good choice for monitoring rotational speed and direction
  • Combining both measurement capabilities in a single device provides control system designers with extra flexibility
  • Incremental signal can be used as a ‘heartbeat’ that confirms the sensor is functioning normally
  • High-performance magnetic measurement technology offers unique combination of accuracy, shock/dust/moisture resistance and compact size
  • Communications interfaces support both measurement modes: RS 422, HTL or TTL for incremental readings and SSI for absolute measurements
  • Available multi-turn versions
  • Can count up to 64,000 revolutions while incremental measurements have resolutions as high as 16,384 pulses per revolution
  • Available with multiple options for housing size and materials, flange configuration, shaft type and diameter, connection/wiring type and level of environmental protection – up to IP67
