Designed For Challenging Environments


High Performance with Incremental or Absolute Interface

POSITAL 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.

Water Proof for Harsh Environments


Water 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.

SSI and Incremental Interface

IXARC High Performance encoders are available with incremental and SSI interfaces to suit your application.


Incremental encoders generate an output signal each time the shaft rotates a certain amount. The number of signals per turn defines the resolution of the device.

  • Up to 16384 pulses per revolution
  • Programmable Output Driver HTL(Push-Pull) and TTL(RS422)

SSI is a widely used serial interface with point-to-point connection between PLC/Master and encoder. It is based on the RS422 standard.

  • Available with resolutions up to 16 bit singleturn and 22 bit multiturn
  • Ability to configure preset and counting direction
