Part no.: LD0-S
• Compact housing
• SSI output
• 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 in almost every available industrial interface both analog and digital as well as incremental and absolute. The line is featured 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.

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.
While most modern rotary encoders rely on non-contact sensing technologies and have high MTBF specifications, in critical applications it is still common to have redundant sensors required. When selecting a solution, a number of different criteria need to be considered and fortunately different solutions exist, making the task less daunting. Redundancy One of the first […]
Encoders that perform in the most important application: Yours!
With the increasing sophistication of electronic controls for mechanical systems, there is more demand for durable, accurate and easy to use displacement sensors. As automation becomes more common there is also an increasing sensitivity to price. Customers also want sensors that can be easily connected and mechanically integrated.
