Explosion Proof Encoders Now ATEX/IECEx Certified


ATEX/IECEx-certified rotary encoders are designed to operate safely in atmospheres where there are potentially dangerous levels of explosive gases or dust. These devices are part of the IXARC family of magnetic and optical rotary sensors and can be delivered with either programmable incremental or absolute output. Rugged, reliable and highly accurate, these devices can be ordered with a wide range of mounting and coupling options that ensure that they can be installed in Zones 2 and 22.

Magnetic vs Optical Measurement Principles


Magnetic encoders are typically more compact and rugged and until now, have offered lower levels of precision an 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.

Position Sensors for Medical Equipment


Modern devices used in the healthcare industry demand advanced technology for precise positioning. TILTIX inclinometers provide accurate measurements and are built to last the life of the equipment. LINARIX linear sensors offer a solution for tracking the position of patient tables. For complex applications, such as fluoroscopy or radiography tables or surgical C-arms, that require coordinated positioning of several components, IXARC absolute rotary encoders are an excellent option. Now with more autonomous robotics being used in medical applications, POSITAL’s family of kits become ideal for state-of-the-art medical equipment.
