Linear Position Sensors from POSITAL FRABA


Draw wire Sensor:
For the measurement of linear movements or linear displacements, an absolute magnetic rotary encoder can be combined with a draw wire sensor. The contact-free measuring sensor stage of the MCD Sensor didn't have any abrasion. The Sensor can directly connected to digital control units via SSI- or CANopen Interface.

Series MDW

US Digital Releases HBA4 Azimuth and Elevation Absolute Encoder


Vancouver, WA -  US Digital announces the release of its latest absolute, blind hollow bore shaft encoder, the HBA4. HBA4 absolute encoders are used as azimuth and elevation position sensors in two axes tracking systems, commonly used in solar applications.
This single turn absolute encoder provides 16-bits of resolution over 360 degrees of shaft rotation. The HBA4 is available with a 12mm or 0.500" diameter bore size with either a ball bearing or sleeve bushing bearing assembly and is sealed to an IP66 rating.

Innovative Motion Sensors a Great Fit for Wind Turbines


FRABA’s OPTIPACT motion sensors measure velocity by calculating the rate at which an image of a moving surface travels across an optical sensor. With no contact between the sensor and the moving object, dust or surface contaminates won’t cause problems. OPTIPACT sensors provide an ideal way of determining rotor speed in wind turbines: just measure the velocity with which part of the rotor (e.g. nose cone or shaft) moves past a point on the body of the turbine. OPTIPACT motion sensors are compact, robust and ideal for primary or backup rotor speed regulation.

Certified SIL CL 3 Encoder with CANopen Safety Interface


The proven optical absolute encoders from POSITAL's OPTOCODE series are now also available as a safety version. The new addition to its product portfolio was developed in cooperation with the FRABA group sister company VITECTOR, which specializes in safety sensors. The new encoders fulfill the requirements of IEC 61508, EN 62061 and thus comply with the new Machinery Directive. Operated with protective extra low voltage (PELV), they are suitable for use in drive technology, lift applications, mobile machines, construction machinery and machine tools.
