Encoder-maker Posital has updated its online Product Finder tool to include the company’s extensive line of kit encoders. Posital offers more than 200 kit encoder variants, featuring multiple mechanical configurations and communications options. Standard products have an outer diameter of 36 mm, while compact versions – only 22 mm across – are ideal for space-critical installations. Both sizes are available with a range of mounting and shaft coupling options. SSI and BiSS C communications interfaces are supported. Single-turn and multiturn variants are available, the latter featuring Posital’s battery-less, self-powered Wiegand rotation counter system. Several models of POSITAL kit encoders are designed to have the same installation footprint as popular incremental encoders from other manufacturers. And finally, a special range of hollow-shaft encoders are available. These ring-shaped devices feature 30- or 50-mm center openings and are designed to be installed around large-diameter shafts, structural members, or wire/hose bundles in robot arms.
Posital’s online Product Finder tool allows users select the features they need, the system zeroes in on the models that will be the best fit for the intended application. The Product Finder tool also provides datasheets, manuals, and technical drawings.
