Superior Durability in Any Enviornment
Over the past 40+ years, optical encoders have been optimized to provide high resolution and absolute position. However, these accomplishments came with great complexity. The optical and mechanical systems are prone to damage from shock and vibration as well as humidity. IXARC magnetic encoders have significantly less moving parts, are less susceptible to humidity and better sealed. The result is a sensor that is capable of being used in applications that previously were not possible such as mobile machinery.
50,000+ Options in Two Weeks or Less
POSITAL's modular production allows custom products to be quickly delivered worldwide. Combined with all mechanical options, a full portfolio of over 50,000 incremental encoders is available now in our product finder.
Compared to the previous generation of magnetic encoders, IXARC offers full control of the signal-processing. Depending on the application it is possible to adjust all relevant parameters without any costly changes on the hardware.
No Battery – No Maintenance
IXARC magnetic encoders have a battery free design. As a result they have a long lifetime without maintenance since batteries are the most common cause of poor reliability for such devices.
No Gear – 100% Absolute
IXARC also offers 100% absolute measurement and continues to record rotations even if no power is supplied, and providing the output signal right after activation. Because of its gearless mechanics the IXARC is wear-free and can withstand high shock and vibration conditions.
