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

Kit Encoders

POSITAL kit encoders offer smart, maintenance-free and cost-efficient solutions for the most challenging tasks in real time motion feedback. Fusion of sensing technologies results in unique designs with uninterruptable, battery-free multiturn function, powered by a Wiegand pulse with every rotation. The gear-free, compact and economically optimized concept is ideal for integration into servo, stepper or BLDC motors.

Incremental Rotary Encoders

Incremental rotary encoders generate an output signal each time the shaft rotates a certain angle. The number of signals (pulses) per turn, also called PPR, defines the resolution of the device. The internal components of an incremental encoder are much simpler than the ones of an absolute encoder. This fits the need of many applications for simple, cost effective solutions while still providing accurate positioning.

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 the angle orientation in space with gravity as reference 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 the installation itself – a real advantage for design engineers.

Linear Sensors

Draw wire sensors, also called cable pull sensors, are designed to perform linear position measurement using an encoder and thus providing high accuracy sensing. Connected to a draw wire, the encoder delivers a signal proportional to the cable that is pulled out. While pinion and racks require perfect alignment and soldering, a draw wire sensor offers an easy-to-install system with a large variety of interface options.
