Netzer DS-58 Encoder

Netzer DS-58 Encoder

The Non-contact, absolute-position Electric Encoder™ relies on interaction between the measured displacement and an internally shielded, space/time modulated, electric field and offers features unsurpassed by traditional optical and magnetic encoders.

The DS-58 is a member of the DS series of Non-contact, absolute-position Electric Encoders™, based on Netzer Precision proprietary technology.  These encoders offer many advantages, some unparalleled:

  • Low profile (17 mm) & low weight
  • 18bit resolution
  • < 0.02° accuracy
  • Analog Sin/Cos, Digital SSi , or Digital AqB+I  outputs
  • Hollow, floating shaft
  • No bearings or other contacting elements
  • Low power options
  • Analog or multiple digital interface options
  • High tolerance to temperature, shock, moisture, EMI, RFI and Magnetic fields

New Stainless Steel Rotary Sensors by POSITAL – FRABA

POSITAL Stainless Steel Rotary Sensors – The Right Flavor for the Food and Beverage Industries

POSITAL Stainless Steel Rotary Sensors – The Right Flavor for the Food and Beverage Industries

POSITAL’s IXARC rotary sensors are available with V4A-rated stainless steel housings and IP69K-level environmental seals.  These rugged and versatile encoders are ideal for applications in the food and beverage industries since they can stand up to highly aggressive cleaning procedures and still deliver the reliability and measurement performance demanded by motion control systems.

The stainless steel housings are also available in explosion-proof (ATEX-rated) designs that can operate safely in environments with potentially dangerous levels of explosive dust or gases.  These models are ideal for grain or flour-handling facilities.

POSITAL encoders are available with a wide variety of output interfaces, ranging from analog to industrial Ethernet. The analog-output devices (also known as programmable potentiometers) are designed to function as a ‘drop-in’ replacement for conventional multi-turn potentiometers in simple control systems.  Because they are based on a magnetic sensor technology that requires no physical contact between measuring components, POSITAL encoders are immune from the wear and corrosion that can degrade the accuracy of conventional resistance-type pots.  Programmability means that they can be readily configured to meet each application’s exact requirements.

Industrial Ethernet connectivity, such as EtherNet/IP, provides a solid base for complex multi-sensor, multi-controller systems. POSITAL EtherNet/IP connected rotary sensors are ODVA-approved and are available in single or multi-turn versions with 16-bit resolution (65,536 steps/turn).

Sensing a Revolution: How Magnetic Sensing Technologies are Changing How You Use Rotary Encoders

Live Webinar Tuesday November 10, 2015  11:00AM EST

For year’s controls and systems engineers have had to balance the robustness of magnetic encoders with the performance of optical encoders. However, this is no longer the case due to recent advances in magnetic sensing technologies.

Breakthroughs in microprocessing and signal filtering have resulted in new magnetic encoders that can rival the performance of optical sensors while being more robust and compact. Learn how to select an encoder for a given application and what the future holds.

Meet the New Members of POSITAL’s Incremental Encoder Family

Posital IXARC Incremental Encoders

Posital IXARC Incremental Encoders

Industrial motion control systems come in all shapes and sizes and different standards are common in different region.  POSITAL has responded to the challenges of this diverse market by offering you an extraordinarily wide range of choices.

  • Programmable Output Driver (HTL/TTL)
  • Customize PPR to Your Application.  Programmable: Any PPR 1−16348, TTL/HTL & More
  • Thousands of Encoders Based On One Hardware
  • Programmable Counting Direction: A before B, B before A
  • Easy to Program with UBIFAST Configuration Tool
  • Large Variety of Mechanical Designs and Electrical Connections
  • Coverage of Standards from America, Asia and Europe
  • Rugged, Reliable Magnetic Sensing Technology
  • Compact Size down to 36 mm Diameter

Quickly Program with any WiFi-Enabled Device

POSITAL’s new programmable incremental rotary encoders take versatility to a new level.  Resolution can be set anywhere from 1 to 16,384 pulses per turn in software, without changing the mechanical properties of the devices.  Similarly, pulse direction and the output driver – either Push-Pull (HTL) or RS422 (TTL) – can be defined through software parameters. Changes can be made quickly using POSITAL’s easy-to-use UBIFAST programming tool.  Device programmability is very significant for system integrators and machine builders since it helps them reduce inventories.  Now, they can hold a relatively small stock of ‘standard’ models and set them up for specific applications on an as-needed basis.

POSITAL has also introduced a unique Internet-enabled configuration management system for IXARC programmable encoders.  Whenever a device is reconfigured, the operator can register the changes with POSITAL through an automatic email interface.  POSITAL will update the configuration history of the device in a database maintained by the company.  If a replacement part is required, this record can be accessed and used to manufacture an encoder with an identical performance profile.  It could also be provided to a distributor or system integrator who could take a mechanically compatible device from their stock, enter the appropriate software parameters and deliver the completed unit directly to the end user.

A Million Possibilities

IXARC rotary encoders are offered in a wide variety of mechanical features, connector types and connection interfaces.  With over a million possible choices, you can find variants that will fit directly into their equipment with minimal modifications.POSITAL’s online product finder enables you to browse through the full range of options and retrieve the specification datasheets and CAD drawings you need.   Order fulfilment is usually within two weeks, virtually anywhere in the world.

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 early 2015, the tool’s integration of web-based software in mobile devices such as tablets, smart phones and notebooks, and the POSITAL cloud support service, makes it an exemplary example of an Internet of Things hardware deployment.

PROGRAMMABLE ENCODERS 2.0

No Software, No App, No Installations

Posital Programmable Encoders

Posital Programmable Encoders

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, a hardware module that can be easily connected to programmable encoders through accessory cables.  The UBIFAST tool features a built-in WiFi hotspot and webserver.  Once the tool has been powered up, any WiFi-enabled smartphone, tablet, or laptop computer can connect to the WiFi hotspot and the configuration interface will automatically open up in a standard web browser window – no app, no software installation, and no Internet connection are required.

Technological Advancements In Encoder Technology

Posital IXARC Encoder

Posital IXARC Encoder

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.  Magnetic encoders are typically more compact and rugged, but with lower levels of precision and dynamic response.  POSITAL has eliminated the need for compromise by developing a new generation of magnetic absolute and incremental encoders that match the performance of optical shaft-mounted encoders in all but the most demanding applications…
