  • POSITAL Hollow Shaft Kit Encoders for Position Control Applications

    PostedTuesday, October 22,2019 at 1:20 PM

    POSITAL’s new hollow shaft kit encoders are designed for installations where it is useful to have a rotary position measuring element (encoder) fit around a machine’s shaft or axle. With their generous center openings (30 or 50 mm) and available multiturn measurement range, these are an excellent solution for many installations, including servomotors, feedback-controlled stepper motors and robot joints. These devices are based on an advanced capacitive measurement technology that combines accuracy, reasonable installation tolerances and rugged reliability. They also feature self-powered rotation counters that eliminate the need for backup batteries and significantly reduce maintenance costs.

    POSITAL’s new family of kit encoders provide the manufacturers of servomotors and other machinery with a rugged, accurate and cost-efficient means of building rotary position measurements into their products. The new kit encoders are based on POSITAL’s highly successful self-contained magnetic rotary encoders. Now however, the core components of these instruments are available as separate assemblies that can be readily integrated into other products.

  • Energy Harvesting with the Wiegand Effect

    PostedMonday, October 29,2018 at 10:31 AM

    With the growing interest in small distributed sensors and other electronic devices
    aimed at collecting data for new application, including the “Internet of Things”, more
    attention is being paid to technologies for energy harvesting. That is, engineers
    and scientists have been on the lookout for ways to enable stand-alone devices
    to collect small amounts of energy from the surrounding physical environment to
    power an isolated electronic circuit. Reducing or eliminating the need for external
    power sources or batteries make devices more self-sufficient, more reliable, and
    reduces maintenance requirements. The Wiegand effect is a proven technology for
    harvesting small amounts of electrical power from mechanical motion.
