Encoder Down? POSITAL Can Help with SOS – Encoder!

firstspirit_16717620019351_sos_encoder_np

Experiencing encoder failure during installation or operation happens occasionally. And often, we do not have time to send a sensor back for complete analysis or even time to call an expert. That is why we have compiled some expert troubleshooting tips to get your encoder back up and running. It is likely that the challenge(s) you are facing have already been encountered and solved. Our SOS Encoder Troubleshooting Guide walks you through simple steps to get your encoder back up and working.

Next-Generation TILTIX Inclinometers

firstspirit_16717620019352_tiltix_nextgen_np

POSITAL has updated its family of TILTIX inclinometers with new three-axis MEMS accelerometers, enhanced firmware, and a new housing concept. These changes enable POSITAL to streamline manufacturing processes and reduce delivery times while maintaining full environmental protection. The new versions are compatible with older models, with identical mounting footprint while offering improved accuracy and better signal-to-noise ratios. Common applications include positioning of solar panels, rollover warning systems for mobile machinery, control systems for crane booms, and tilt control in service robots, AGV’s and other materials-handling systems. Customers will be able to order CANopen and Analog variations by end of this year, with SSI and Modbus-RTU interfaces to be added to the catalogue over the next year.

  • Enhanced Programming Function (Number of Axes, Filtering Methods)
  • Reduced Cross-Axis Sensitivity
  • Improved Measurement Accuracy to ± 0.1 Degrees
  • Available in Fiber-Reinforced Plastic Housings or IP69K-rated Metal Enclosures

UBITO’s Breakthrough in Energy Harvesting

firstspirit_16717620019354_ubito_breakthrough_np

UBITO’s latest breakthrough Wiegand energy harvester opens new windows to the Internet of Things. With the development of an exciting new Wiegand Harvester, Weigand technology (which collects energy from movements of an external magnetic field) can now be positioned beside established energy harvesting techniques such as solar, piezo, or thermos-electrics as an energy source for sensor nodes in the emerging Internet of Things (also known as Industry 4.0).

With energy harvesting as the main goal, UBITO aimed at improving the energy output from Wiegand devices and established the possibility of self-powered sensors that could detect and transmit data wirelessly to an IoT network. The new “Wiegand Harvester” generates over 50 times more energy that commercial Wiegand sensors making it possible to consider self-sufficient sensors communicating wirelessly over a significant distance.
