MOTION CONTROL SENSORS
POSITAL is a manufacturer of sensors for motion control and safety assurance systems. The company’s products, which include rotary encoders, inclinometers and linear position sensors, are used in a wide range of settings, from manufacturing to mining, agriculture to energy.
POSITAL is a member of the international FRABA Group. FRABA Group is a market-leading enterprise that makes use of advanced product design and manufacturing process to ensure that its customers enjoy the benefits of technology leadership, choice, product quality and competitive prices.
IXARC INCREMENTAL ROTARY ENCODERS
Many applications require a simple, cost effective solution for accurate positioning. IXARC incremental encoders provide high resolution measurement using an incremental interface. They are available with common configurations such as A, B, Z, and inverted signals available as HTL (Push-Pull) or TTL (RS422).
IXARC ABSOLUTE ROTARY ENCODERS
Motion control applications – ranging from factory automation to control systems for mobile machines – require precise, real-time information about the physical location of mechanical equipment. Absolute rotary encoders can provide precise and unambiguous measurements without losing track of their position due to a temporary loss of instrument power.
Inclinometers, also called tilt sensors are designed to measure the angle of an object with respect to the force of gravity. These tilt or level meters determine pitch and/or roll angle and output these values via the appropriate electrical interface. Inclinometers are easy to integrate to an application, because there is no need for mechanical linkages other than just the installation itself – a real advantage for design engineers.
LINARIX DRAW WIRE SENSORS
Many applications require linear motion to be monitored for system control or to ensure safety. With lengths ranging from 1 m to 15 m (3’ to 49’), LINARIX linear sensors are available in many configurations to meet an application’s requirements. Options include a wide variety of outputs (including analog, fieldbus and Ethernet variants), heavy duty housings and compact design.
Similar to POSITAL, VITECTOR is a manufacturer and for the door and gate market.
