Part no.: LD0-A
• Compact housing
• Voltage and Current (4-20mA) output options
• 1m to 30m measurement range options
POSITAL’s LINARIX draw wire sensors measure linear motion by displacing a stainless steel wire wound around a wire drum that actuates the rotary encoder coupled to it via coupling. A spring is used to retract the wire in the housing. The encoder provides a proportional output. Measurements are highly accurate, reliable and the systems have very long lifetime
The LINARIX line offers a wide range of measurement lengths ranging from 1 m to 30 m [3 to 98 ft] and position output is given as an analog voltage or current signal. Furthermore the output can be scaled over the specific range of interest without any special programming or tools, optimizing the dynamic range. LINARIX products are available with different mechanical options, housing materials and springs to enable you to always find the most suitable product for your application
Compared to conventional linear pots and linear measurement systems using multiple gears and encoders LINARIX line are more durable and can be used to replace them directly avoiding common problems of slippage and wear. Draw wire sensors from POSITAL provide extremely precise measurements because of inherent accuracy of encoders while rugged construction ensures reliable performance even under extreme conditions.

What semiconductors, snacking and gambling all have in common: Encoders!
There has been a lot of talk lately around the global ‘chip’ shortage. Even social media last month was filled with cartoons of engineers asking Santa for semiconductors for Christmas. Rotary encoders such as the DS-130 by Netzer Precision are an important part of this ‘chip’ production. Accuracies exceeding 0.004 degrees, 21 bit resolution and a 90mm ID ensure that component placement can be done accurately and consistently.
Inclinometers, also called tilt sensors, clinometers, or slope sensors, are designed to measure the angle of an object with respect to the force of gravity. These tilt or level meters determine the pitch and/or roll angle and output these values via the appropriate electrical interface.
A multiturn rotary encoder is a sensor that measures the angle of rotation of a shaft, as well as the number of complete revolutions that the shaft has made. This is in contrast to a single-turn encoder, which only measures the angle of rotation, 0 – 360°. Multiturn encoders are used in a variety of applications where it is important to track the position of a moving object, such as in machine tools, robotics, and automation systems.
Recently, obtaining the Inductosyn and components for maintenance has become more difficult. For decades the Inductosyn from Farrand Controls / Ruhle Companies sat near the top of the rotary sensor hierarchy. Providing sub 2 arcsec (0.5 mdeg) accuracies, it combined the robustness of a resolver with the performance of the best optical encoders. Despite its shortcomings, it found plenty of customers, from airborne infrared and radar systems, to telescopes, satellite communication antennae (SATCOM), machine tooling and low-pressure vacuum chambers.
