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 distributors, system integrators or 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.
