Getting exactly the right position sensor for a specific packaging application can be challenging, but with POSITAL’s programmable rotary encoders, users have a cost-effective and convenient way of configuring sensors to deliver exactly what’s needed. With programmable IXARC encoders, key performance characteristics such as resolution, communications interfaces and measurement ranges can be set up through […]
Wiegand sensors – tiny devices that use variations in an external magnetic field to generate electrical signals and energy – have unique properties that make them a useful option for proximity sensing systems. Wiegand sensors are built around small sections of Wiegand wire, a specially prepared ferromagnetic alloy that has a unique physical property. When […]
Size matters, and in the world of industrial automation, providing exceptional performance in a highly compact package can be an enormous advantage. With this in mind, encoder manufacturer Posital has unveiled a fully functional prototype of their new miniature multi-turn kit encoder for integrated motor feedback. With a diameter of only 22 mm and a […]
In the world of industrial automation, providing exceptional performance in a highly compact package can be an enormous advantage. So encoder manufacturer POSITAL has unveiled a fully functional prototype of their new miniature multi-turn kit encoder for integrated motor feedback. With a diameter of only 22 mm and a height of 23 mm (0.87 in.) […]
POSTIAL-FRABA’s new hollow-shaft kit encoders are now a complementary product in Rockwell Automation’s PartnerNetwork Encompass program. These new products mark a significant innovation for industrial motion control. Until now, almost all through or hollow-shaft encoders have been limited to a single-turn measurement range, largely because fully satisfactory multi-turn technology has been not been available. POSITAL […]
POSITAL’s Wiegand assemblies offer a compact and efficient way of harvesting power for electronic circuits in electromechanical devices, eliminating the need for backup batteries. The operating principle of POSITAL’s Wiegand modules is simple. A “Wiegand wire” is a short length of specially prepared Vicalloy (vanadium-iron-cobalt) wire. When exposed to a changing external magnetic field (e.g. […]
Posital has added a new communications interface for its innovative Dynamic TILTIX series – making it even easier to use these smart and rugged instruments in mobile machinery and heavy duty construction vehicles. Now available with either CANopen or SAE J1939 interfaces, these acceleration-compensated tilt sensors are able to deliver accurate measurement under the harshest […]
POSITAL TILTIX inclinometers are available with a new communication interface, Modbus RTU. Modbus RTU protocols, which are openly published and royalty-free, have emerged as a de-facto standard for simple, robust and cost-efficient data acquisition and control systems built around standard PLCs. Modbus RTU nodes can be connected together through RS-485 serial connections with up to…
Position and motion sensor specialist POSITAL has announced that its 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 […]
Rotary encoder specialist POSITAL has expanded its interface offerings for its magnetic Kit Encoders with support for the nonproprietary open-source BiSS Line communication protocol. This enables the practical implementation of single-cable technology, which is becoming increasingly popular with motor and robot manufacturers. POSITAL’s easy-to-install motor feedback kits, which feature 17-bit electronic resolution, bridge the gap […]
POSITAL FRABA his participating as a founding member of the BiSS Association — a new organization dedicated to encouraging the use of the BiSS family of open-source industrial communications protocols. BiSS communications protocols were developed by the German company iC-Haus GmbH as an efficient and feature-rich digital interface for communications between industrial sensors, actuators and […]
POSITAL-FRABA Inc., has announced several management changes. Due to the rapid growth of the company and the need to address the special needs of different markets, a new position of Vice President of Sales has been created. This position will be filled by Wojciech Pajak, previously the head of the company’s global manufacturing plant based […]
by Jarrod Orszulak, Product Manager, POSITAL-FRABA The latest programmable encoders offer both incremental and absolute functionality on one hardware platform and can be programmed with a WiFi connection….
Posital-Fraba, a manufacturer of position and motion sensors for industrial motion control and safety systems, has launched a new support program for system integrators. “System integrators are very demanding in terms of performance, price and availability,” explains Patrick Maxwell, Product Officer at Posital–Fraba. “We have strengths in each of these areas and want to help…
POSITAL-FRABA’s versatile TILTIX inclinometers are available packaged in extra-rugged die-cast aluminum housings designed to withstand accidental impact loads from tools, rocks or unsecured pieces of equipment. They also…
