PROGRAMMABLE ENCODERS SIMPLIFY STOCKHOLDING

Machine builders and systems integrators using rotary encoders for speed and position feedback are faced with a bewildering array of encoder specifications that can make choosing and stocking the correct encoder for each job a logistical nightmare.

The solution is the Posital’s new magnetic series of rotary encoders, available in Australia from Plant Control & Automation.

Each encoder in the series is fully programmable for both incremental and absolute specifications. And it can be reprogrammed just as easily.

Resolution can be set anywhere from 1 to 16,384 pulses per turn in software, without changing the mechanical properties of the device. Likewise, the pulse direction and output driver can also be programmed.

Programming is simple, using the Ubifast configuration box and any Wi-Fi enabled device - from a PC to a smartphone.
