POSITAL’s new series of measuring wheel accessories for its IXARC family of rotary encoders turns them into linear position sensors. When one of the wheels is mounted on the shaft of an encoder, the result is an accurate and reliable instrument for measuring linear motion and position.
The new measuring wheels are available in circumferences of 200 mm and 500 mm. When fitted to multi-turn IXARC absolute encoders, this would translate into a linear measurement range of up to 500 km. Three rim treatments are available; knurled aluminum, smooth polyurethane and textured (knobby) polyurethane, to ensure good traction between the wheel and a variety of surfaces.
IXARC programmable encoders can be easily calibrated at the job site using POSITAL’s convenient UBIFAST programming tool. Ideal uses for the measuring wheel accessories include equipment positioning and cut-to-length applications.
