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 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…

New POSITAL Hybrid Rotary Encoders Combine Incremental and Absolute Functionality March 11, 2015

POSITAL has introduced new models of its versatile IXARC magnetic encoders that combine incremental and absolute rotation measurement capabilities in a single, compact and highly robust package.  Absolute encoders provide a control system with an accurate report of the rotational angle and rotation-count at a specific point in time, which makes them ideal for many machinery positioning tasks.

Incremental encoders provide a signal pulse each time the encoder shaft rotates by a specified angle.  Their excellent dynamic response makes them a good choice for monitoring rotational speed and direction.  “Combining both measurement capabilities in a single device provides control system designers with extra flexibility,” underlines POSITAL product manager Chintan Doshi.  “Moreover, the incremental signal can be used as a ‘heartbeat’ that confirms that the sensor is functioning normally.”  Because the new IXARC hybrid encoders are based on POSITAL’s high-performance magnetic measurement technology, they offer a unique combination of accuracy, shock/dust/moisture resistance and compact size.

IXARC hybrid incremental + absolute rotary encoders have communications interfaces that support both measurement modes: RS 422, HTL or TTL for incremental readings and SSI for absolute measurements. Available multi-turn versions can count up to 64,000 revolutions while incremental measurements have resolutions as high as 16,384 pulses per revolution.

Like other POSITAL sensors, the new IXARC hybrid incremental + absolute 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 – up to IP67. 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.

High Performance with Incremental or Absolute Interface

Posital Encoders challenging environments IXARCPOSITAL is excited to introduce the new IXARC high performance magnetic encoder in a heavy duty version.  With an IP68/IP69K rating, high shock and vibration resistance and high load bearing shafts, these encoders are built to last in the most abusive environments.  IXARC High Performance encoders are available with incremental and SSI interfaces to suit your application, and provide up to 16384 pulses per revolution (incremental) and  resolutions up to 16 bit singleturn and 22 bit multiturn (SSI).

Water Proof for Harsh Environments

Postial waterproof encoderWater damage is a common problem for many sensors, but not for the IXARC heavy duty rotary encoder. Whether it is pressure washing an excavator or salt spray on a ship, with an IP68/IP69K environmental rating and optional stainless steel housings, these sensors are built for years of reliable use.

 

Compact and Robust Housings

The IP68/IP69K IXARC heavy duty rotary encoder has a diameter of only 36/42 mm which makes it a compact solution for many applications with limited installation space. Moreover, its rugged housing, hardened shaft and extraordinary sealing provide protection against wear and corrosion.
