Designers of motion control or industrial automation systems who need to measure the rotation of shafts or other mechanical components have had two types of rotary encoders to choose from.  Encoders based on optical measuremental techniques can provide high levels of precision and dynamic response, but are relatively bulky and can be unreliable in damp or dusty conditions.  Magnetic encoders are typically more compact and rugged, but until now, have offered lower levels of precision and dynamic response.  Read this white paper to learn about Posital's new magnetic IXARC encoders  that are compact, accurate, fast and tough enough for challenging conditions.
