POSITAL at BAUMA 2019
From April 8 to April 14 we will be exhibiting at BAUMA in Munich, the wolrd's leading exhibition for mobile machinery.
Find us in hall 2A booth 434!
Mobile machinery can only be successfull when safety, efficiency and reliability are combined. POSITAL encoders can be used in a variety of applications to accomplish these goals - such as monitoring the stability of a platform and the careful positioning of boom arms and blasting equipment. To be effective, sensors must withstand years of impact, shock, vibration, extreme temperatures and inclement weather.
Sensors for Mobile Machines − Tough Sensors for Tough Jobs
NEW Sensors for Mobile Machines
New Dynamic Acceleration Compensated Inclinometer
POSITAL has introduced a new version of its TILTIX inclinometers that can provide reliable tilt measurement for moving equipment. These new devices use a combination of electro-mechanical accelerometers and gyroscopes to provide accurate measurements, even if the instruments are subject to strong accelerations.
- Compensation of External Accelerations
- Clean Measurement During Dynamic Movements
- Optional Output of Acceleration and Rate of Rotation
- CANopen and SAE J1939 Interfaces
- Well Protected up to IP69K
- Compact and Robust Die-cast Housing with Integrated T-Coupler
- Wide Temperature Range from -40 to +85°C
New High Resolution and Compact Rotary Encoders with SAE J1939 Interface
IXARC high-precision magnetic absolute rotary encoders are now available with SAE J1939 interface.
With improved magnetic field measurement sensors and advanced signal processing techniques, POSITAL has been able to offer devices with accurate and dynamic response characteristics that rival traditional optical encoders in smaller, more robust, and more cost-efficient packages. Single- and multi-turn models are available. For multi-turn versions, the rotation counter is self-powered, with no need for backup batteries.
The communication interface SAE J1939 is an excellent choice for applications in vehicles, mobile machinery, cranes, lifts and offshore equipment. Device parameters - like code sequence, preset value or resolution - can be configured easily by J1939 telegrams. A variety of connection options are available, including cables of various lengths and radially or axially oriented M12 connectors. Housings with bus-in/bus-out connectors are available for applications where it is convenient to connect several serial devices (bus line topology).
New Precision Encoders for Safety Systems as Certified and Compliant Version
Safety certified or compliant encoders offer many advantages such as increased personnel safety, minimized risk of malfunctioning machines, and reduced development time.
IXARC safety encoders are certified to Safety Integrity Level 2 (SIL 2) and Performance Level d (PL d), Cat. 2. They feature CANopen Safety or PROFIsafe protocols. Certified safety encoders are used for critical applications in mobile machines where loss of control could result in a serious hazard.
POSITAL also offers redundant diverse encoders which are compliant to a safety level of PL d, Cat. 3. These encoders consists of one optical and one magnetic system and are available with SSI or CANopen communication interfaces. POSITAL redundant encoders can be used in applications where safety and cost are of high importance.
• Certified SIL 2, PL d, Cat. 2: PROFINET and CANopen Encoders
• Safety Compliant PL d, Cat. 3: SSI or CANopen Encoders
New Programmable Analog Multiturn Encoder
POSITAL has launched a new generation of analog rotary encoders for position control. Compared to earlier analog encoders, these new models feature improved accuracy, faster dynamic responses and new programming options. They also accept a wider range of supply voltages, an advantage for mobile machinery applications.
POSITAL’s analog encoders are designed for positioning tasks that use analog control systems. Outputs are either voltage (0-5V, 0.5-4,5V, 0-10V or 0.5-9.5V) or current (4-20mA). The magnetic measurement mechanism is wear-free and extremely durable so that these devices offer better accuracy, reliability and service life than conventional potentiometers.
New High Resolution Magnetic Encoders with Ethernet Interfaces
For many years, POSITAL’s magnetic encoders have been available with the most common Ethernet interfaces: Profinet, EtherCAT, and Ethernet/IP. POSITAL’s precision IXARC magnetic encoders can provide a resolution up to 16-bit, 12-bit accuracy, and rapid dynamic response that rivals the best optical encoders. Thanks to the magnetic measurement technology, these rugged devices are engineered to operate reliably under wet and dusty conditions. Multiturn models count any desired number of revolutions, provided by a unique self-powered revolution counter, still computing even when powered off. POSITAL will soon release its next generation of Profinet and Ethernet/IP encoders. Amongst many new functionalities, the new products will integrate respectively MRP and DLR, or non-integer scaling ratio.
Like other POSITAL sensors, IXARC encoders are available with almost any type of mechanical configuration, connection/wiring type, and level of environmental protection.
