Cost-Effective Absolute Rotary Encoders for DeviceNet and EtherNet IP-Based Systems
OPTOCODE encoders combine precision (up to 216 steps per turn), durability and outstanding versatility. A wide range of mechanical and electronic configurations are available, including single- and multi-turn versions (up to 16,384 rotations). Other options include multiple flange and shaft configurations and a variety of casing materials, ranging from low-cost aluminum to rugged stainless steel.
For many years, POSITAL has been a leader in the manufacture of precision rotary encoders with more than 250,000 units delivered worldwide. Thanks to the highly modular design of these devices and POSITAL’s sophisticated manufacturing facilities, special configurations can be built quickly at very competitive prices, even for small orders. POSITAL’s OPTOCODE encoders with Ethernet interfaces have received certifications for the EtherNet/IP interface from the Open DeviceNet Vendors Association (ODVA), the first device of this type to receive this certification.
