High-performance rotary encoders
IXARC rotary encoders combine the accuracy and dynamic response of optical encoders with the ruggedness and compact form factor of magnetic encoders.

The encoders feature a new four-element Hall-effect magnetic sensor linked to a 32-bit microprocessor running highly optimized signal-processing software. The units survive dust, moisture, severe shock, and vibration loading. Microprocessor-centered design allows modifications to zero-point, rotational direction, and sensitivity through simple software updates. Dynamic response of the new measuring components makes it possible to offer both incremental and absolute versions.
