The POSITAL Advantage - Over 130,000 Varieties of Sensors

The POSITAL Advantage - Over 130,000 Varieties of Sensors available through Servo2Go.com
 
The POSITAL Advantage: Modularity and Mass-Customization. Until now, users of position and motion sensors have had to choose between low-cost standardized products and more expensive custom-built items.  For cost-sensitive applications, sensor builders have adopted mass production techniques, building large runs of identical products. The rotation sensors used in automotive ABS and stability control systems are good examples of high-volume, mass produced items.

High Accuracy, Open Frame, Thermally Stable Galvo Scanner

High Accuracy, Open Frame, Thermally Stable AGV-HPO Galvo Scanner from Aerotech
The highly repeatable and thermally stable feedback sensors used on the AGV-HPO scanner systems can be calibrated down to single-digit, micron-level accuracy over the field of view. With the extremely low thermal gain drift performance of the position transducers, complex, high-density laser machining applications will maintain consistent micron-level feature placement accuracy over the lifetime of the process. Likewise, high throughput applications will maintain consistent part-to-part quality without having to re-calibrate between parts.
