Communication Systems & Equipment

Incremental Encoders use precision measurement technology.

Using precision magnetic measurement technology and signal processing software running on 32-bit MPUs, incremental encoders of IXARC series generate output signals each time shaft rotates certain amount. Products are available in thousands of configurations with HTL (Push-Pull) or TTL (RS422) interfaces, different types of electrical connectors, and range of shaft and flange diameters. Heavy-duty...

Communication Systems & Equipment

Magnetic Rotary Encoder features hollow shaft design.

Designed for shafts up to 20 mm dia, MAGNETOCODE Absolute Rotary Encoder is based on rotating magnet and Hall-effect sensor, and is available with analog or digital electrical interfaces. Range setting feature enables installer to teach device limits of mechanical motion that will be experienced during operation. Once limits have been defined, device will automatically self-calibrate so that full...

Test & Measurement

Multi-Purpose Inclinometers offer analog and digital outputs.

IP68 rated ACCELENS inclinometers are available in 2-axis versions that measure angular displacements of up to ±80Â-º in both axes and single axis models with range of 0-360º. Analog outputs are between 4-20 mA and 0.5-4.5 V. Digital output via RS232 interface facilitates programming device parameters such as zero-offset, reporting mode, reporting rate, and baud rate. Featuring...

Absolute Position Sensors

POSITAL Revolutionizes Analog Encoders Limited lifetime potentiometers and other more expensive rotary sensing solutions can be replaced by POSITAL's multi-turn MCD encoder with analog interface. Preset and user defined angular range (i.e. scaling) functionalities make installation a breeze. Outputs include Voltage (V) and Current (mA). Even unlike other analog encoders, the MCD employs deadband...

Rotary Encoders are offered with analog interface.

Available in single- or multi-turn models, MAGNETOCODE (MCD) family of rotary encoders enable electronic adjustment of measuring range. They use non-contacting Hall-effect sensors to measure rotations, and have memory system that keeps track of number of rotations that have occurred, even when instrument system is powered down. Available in solid and hollow shaft versions, encoders measure only...
