POSITAL Upgrades PROFINET Interface


The upgrade of POSITAL’s PROFINET communications interface for absolute rotary encoders now allows output from the encoders to be scaled to meet the requirements of the controller. Fractional scaling is now also available which allows for virtually any measuring factor to be used. This new encoder interface also provides improved availability and speed, eliminating down-time and delays for your operations.

All PROFINET Encoders

  • New Capabilities: Acceleration Monitoring and Over-Temperature Warnings
