POSITAL has come up with a robust non-contact encoder to replace old-fashioned geared potentiometers. Thanks to the contact-free recording of the angular position and revolution, the magnetic encoders from POSITAL are completely wear-free. Their magnetic functional principle not only enables a durable design and compact dimensions but also makes the encoders considerably less costly than optoelectronic models.
The IXARC magnetic absolute encoders allow for electronic adjustment of the measuring range, enabling users to use the complete output range to record measurements. The units are configured by moving the encoders into the desired end positions, which are then stored in the encoder by means of a teach-in input using the Push Buttons. The measured values between these positions are scaled automatically.
