POSITAL has launched a new line of incremental rotary encoders for the motion control and industrial automation markets. These devices are programmable, which means that performance characteristics such as resolution (number of pulses per turn) and incremental pulse direction (A before B or B before A) can be modified by simply changing firmware parameters. The characteristics of the output driver can similarly be set to either Push-Pull (HTL) or RS422 (TTL).

The new incremental encoders are based on magnetic measurement technology and are compact, rugged and highly resistant to shock and vibration loadings. Resolution can be set anywhere in the range of 1 to 16,384 pulses per turn. They are also available with high performance seals that make them suitable for use in the most extreme environmental conditions.

Like other POSITAL motion and position sensors, the new incremental encoders are available in a very large number of mechanical configurations. Buyers can choose from an industry-leading range of features and options using POSITAL’s online Product Finder tool, then have the appropriate products built to order in less than two weeks.

POSITAL Adds Communications Interfaces for IXARC Magnetic Encoders April 24, 2015

Posted by Servo2Go.com in New Product Press Releases.
Tags: , , , , , ,
add a comment
POSITAL-FRABA has introduced two new communications interfaces for its high-precision IXARC magnetic rotary encoders. These versatile, compact and cost-effective devices are now available with PROFINET and EtherCAT interfaces.The networking technologies supported by the new communications interfaces play important roles in factory automation control systems and in process industries.
Posital ProfiNet EtherCAT Encoder
PROFINET, a development of the widely-used PROFIBUS fieldbus system, makes use of Ethernet technology and can be used in larger installations where it is useful to integrate factory floor systems with other applications (such as ERP systems) running on the larger enterprise Ethernet network. PROFINET includes special Ethernet communications protocols to provide real-time signaling between devices. EtherCAT (Ethernet for Control Automation Technology) is a special form of industrial Ethernet that avoids the unpredictable transmission delays that characterize ‘standard’ Ethernet networks. EtherCAT networks ensure rapid communications of interrupt signals between a controller and other devices within a control system where real-time control is essential.
POSITAL-FRABA’s precision IXARC magnetic encoders provide 12 bit accuracy and dynamic response that rivals the best optical encoders. Based on magnetic measurement technology, these rugged devices are engineered to operate reliably in wet and dirty conditions with shock loadings of up to 300g. Multi-turn models have a range of up to 65,536 revolutions, provided by a unique self-powered revolution counting system that keeps track of absolute positions under all conditions. IXARC encoders are available with multiple options for housing size and materials, flange configuration, shaft type and diameter, connection/wiring type and level of environmental protection.
POSITAL’s online product finder tool – available at www.posital.com – helps users to quickly and efficiently identify products that will meet their specific requirements.

Posital Programmable Encoders

Posital Programmable Encoders

While the 2015 International CES and its exhibitors may think they own the Internet of Things (IoT) based on the recent fanfare, factory automation is among the many areas besides consumer electronics that is poised to benefit from the connectivity provided by the IoT (CES coverage on pages 4, 12 and 13).  In fact, for factories other commonly used terms include smart factories, smart production, Industry 4.0, cyber physical systems (CPS) and more.

Smarter factories mean increased automation with highly-connected intelligent production systems and processes.  In the factory environment, the connectivity to the Cloud (the cyber system) from the physical system in the factory can be wireless or wired.  Many industrial IoT applications start with wireless sensing monitoring and controlling production processes and providing that data to other locations within the company or by obtaining input from internal or external sources to improve the automation process…

Quantum Devices QD110 Encoder

Quantum Devices QD110 Encoder

Quantum Devices, Inc. Model QD110 is designed to provide high resolution digital feedback in an industrial standard size 11 mounting format.  Quadrature with reference pulse output format, resolutions up to 2048 lines per revolution (direct read) and a variety of electrical options are easily capable of satisfying the most demanding feedback application.  The QD110 provides the user digital position information, directly from the feedback device, without the external R to D converters that are typically used with resolver feedback.

Converting from size 11 resolver to encoder feedback is easily accomplished with the QD110 without the need for costly mounting modification to existing designs. QDI’s unique optical sensing system embodies a much simplified encoder design, which ultimately results in longer service life and less down time due to feedback device failure.  A nickel coated carbon fiber composite housing provides the EMI shielding of an all-metal housing and the high performance of a lightweight assembly.  Features include:

  • Standard Size 11 encoder mounting
  • Compatible with Size 11 Resolver mounting
  • Resolutions up to 2048 line per Revolution Direct Read
  • Unique Optical Sensing System
  • Differential and single ended outputs
  • Nickel coated carbon fiber composite housing

The POSITAL Advantage – Over 130,000 Varieties of Sensors! November 25, 2014

The POSITAL Advantage: Modularity and Mass-Customization

Posital Fraba Encoders

Posital Fraba Encoders

Until now, users of position and motion sensors have had to choose between low-cost standardized products and more expensive custom-built items.  For cost-sensitive applications, sensor builders have adopted mass production techniques, building large runs of identical products.  The rotation sensors used in automotive ABS and stability control systems are good examples of high-volume, mass produced items.  For more demanding customers – such as machine builders creating complex industrial automation and motion control systems – sensor manufacturers have often relied on a more craft-based approach, with expert machinists building custom-designed products in in small batch quantities.  These specialized items are more expensive than their mass-produced counterparts and usually take far longer to be delivered. However, for the specialist machine builder, getting instruments that meet their exact requirements can often be more cost-effective than adapting a not-quite-right unit.

POSITAL has broken down the “inexpensive but inflexible” vs. “customized but costly” divide by developing a new mass-customized approach to sensor design and fabrication.  This approach centers on a highly modular device architecture.  Sensing elements, controlling microprocessors, housings, communications interfaces, mounting hardware etc. are all designed to be – as far as possible – interchangeable modules.  Thus, for example, if the buyer of a rotary encoder requires a POSITAL IXARC multi-turn magnetic encoder with a stainless-steel housing, IP67-rated seals, a 10 mm solid shaft and a CANopen communications interface, the technician responsible for assembling the device can simply select the appropriate sub-components from inventory and put them together.  This approach means that FRABA can offer an extremely large number of possible variations on their basic sensor designs – over 135,000 models currently!Moreover, special configurations can be built and delivered quickly – usually within a few days of receiving an order.

FRABA’s modular approach to sensor fabrication is supported by a highly computerized manufacturing control system.  Assembly technicians are provided with step-by-step instructions that guide them through the assembly process.  (These instructions are in graphical form, which avoids communications problems with a multi-lingual workforce.) The production control system also tracks each item from the time an order is received, recording information about construction, QA testing, calibration and shipping.
