Magnetic encoders - Fraba Inc.

Positol’s Magnetocode (MCD) Series encoders are for motion-control applications such as elevator-control systems. The absolute rotary encoders come in single or multiturn versions and a CAN-open-certified digital interface is available that supports the CiA 417 lift application. The encoders feature ball-bearing-mounted shafts and highly accurate noncontact position-measurement technology. The digital interface allows programming of internal parameters such as operating mode, data-transmission rates, zero offset, direction of rotation, and number of steps per turn. The MCD’s internal system also keeps track of absolute position readings.
