POSITAL Incremental Encoders with Space-Saving Angled Cable Entry

POSTED 10/01/2018

POSITAL Incremental Encoders with Angled Cable Entry Hamilton, New Jersey – Position and motion sensor specialist POSITAL has announced that its popular IXARC incremental encoders will be available with a special housing that features a cable entry angled at 45° to the device’s axis. This compact design combines features of both axial and radial cable entries in a single unit, providing the installer with more flexibility when laying out the connection cable – a real plus in tight spaces!

The new encoder models share the advantages of other IXARC incremental encoders. The core magnetic measurement technology is rugged and accurate, with excellent dynamic response. A wide variety of flange and shaft configurations are available, reducing the need for costly adaptors or work-around. A water and dust-tight grommet around the cable entry ensures that these devices meet IP65 level ingress protection. The housing is 36mm in diameter and 32mm long.

IXARC incremental encoders are programmable: resolution can be set anywhere from one to 16,384 pulses-per-turn in software without requiring any changes to the mechanical properties of the devices. Similarly, pulse direction and the output driver – either Push-Pull (HTL) or RS422 (TTL) – can be defined through software parameters. Changes can be made quickly in the field or in the shop using POSITAL’s easy-to-use UBIFAST programming tool.

POSITAL makes it easy for customers to find the right IXARC incremental encoder for their specific application. The product finder tool at www.posital.com enables a customer to specify the product features required for their project and quickly zero in on the most suitable products.
