POSITAL takes rotary encoder programming into the Internet of Things

In this video, Christian Leeser, partner, FRABA Group, talks about rotary and linear motion sensing for industrial and harsh environment applications.  Leeser also introduces the UBIFAST Programmable Encoder 2.0 tool for the IXARC series of rotary encoders from POSITAL, designed to simplify device implementation by designers, maintenance staff and distributors.  Available in North America in … Continue reading POSITAL takes rotary encoder programming into the Internet of Things

PROGRAMMABLE ENCODERS 2.0

No Software, No App, No Installations POSITAL is introducing powerful new programming capabilities and tools for their IXARC series of rotary encoders.  With these new capabilities, the encoders’ performance characteristics can be extensively modified through software changes, without requiring any changes to physical components. In a related development, POSITAL is introducing the UBIFAST configuration tool, … Continue reading PROGRAMMABLE ENCODERS 2.0

Technological Advancements In Encoder Technology

When designers of motion control systems need to measure the rotation of shafts or other mechanical components, they have had two types of rotary encoders to choose from.  Encoders based on optical measurement technologies provide high levels of precision and dynamic response, but are relatively bulky and can be unreliable in damp or dusty conditions.  … Continue reading Technological Advancements In Encoder Technology

More versions, more power – The new DCX motors and GPX gearboxes from maxon motor

The maxon X drives family of configurable products is growing

Like all motors in the DCX series, these brushed DC motors feature high power density and low vibration.  In addition to the technical highlights, the program's appeal lies in the configuration options.  Motors, gearheads and encoders may be selected and ordered online.  After only 11 working days, even complex drive systems are ready to be … Continue reading The maxon X drives family of configurable products is growing

New AqB+Index Interface now available on Extreme Environment Encoders

Even though the Netzer Electric Encoder™ is inherently absolute, there is still a market requirement for incremental AqB+Index output - similar to that of classical optical encoders. Netzer Precision Motion Sensors now offers its standard Electric encoder™ with an AqB+Index output option which is obtained by processing the internal sine/cosine analog signals.  Unlike in optical … Continue reading New AqB+Index Interface now available on Extreme Environment Encoders
