Cube Encoders: Updating an Old Industry Favorite


POSITAL’s line of cube encoders are perfect drop-in replacements for traditional designs. Without special mounts or brackets, installation is a breeze! Programmability of incremental interfaces and resolutions as well as a robust housing make these a versatile choice for new and traditional machines. The measurement module inside the cube provides high levels of accuracy and dynamic response in a rugged package that is tolerant of shock and vibration loading, dust and moisture. Identical mechanical dimensions and interfaces for traditional cube designs also make them a cost-effective replacement for older or unreliable units.

Precise Measurements with our Spring-Loaded Pivot Arm


Paired with our measuring wheel and IXRAC encoder, POSITAL’s spring-loaded pivot arm is optimally suited to ensure precise and reliable length measurement even during higher spring travel. The spring arm can be mounted from both sides thereby allowing for change in the direction of the spring load. The preload and resulting contact pressure and both adjustable through clamp fastening.

Spring Loaded Pivot Arm 36mm

Spring Loaded Pivot Arm 58mm

  • Available in Two Options –
    • 36mm Synchro Flange
    • 58mm Clamping Flange
  • Compatible with IXARC Encoders of Similar Flange Design
