Measuring Wheel Accessories for IXARC Family of Rotary Encoders

April 14, 2016

POSITAL has introduced a series of measuring wheel accessories for its IXARC family of rotary encoders. When one of these wheels is mounted on the shaft of an encoder, the result is an accurate and reliable instrument for measuring linear motion and position.

With the new measuring wheels, POSITAL provides a very convenient way to make linear displacement measurements while taking advantage of the proven performance of our extensive line of rotary encoders.

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 kilometers.

Three rim treatments are available to ensure good traction between the wheel and a variety of surfaces:

  • Knurled Aluminum
  • Smooth Polyurethane
  • Textured (knobby) Polyurethane
