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...
