Programmable LINARIX: Simple Linear Position Measurement from POSITAL

MC POSITAL Programmable LINARIX 1 400

January 26, 2022

POSITAL’s programmable draw wire encoders simplify your linear position measurement. Not only can the user define their own draw wire output (i.e., 0-10V at 0 to 5m or 0 to 4.252m) to match their application, they can also reconfigure certain programmable parameters. Machines and needs may evolve over the time. That’s why POSITAL has extended the functionality of the UBIFAST configuration tool.

In just a few clicks you will be able to program your desired measurement range and length per revolution. To create simple installation with precise measurement, POSITAL have joined the power of their UBIFAST configuration tool with the accuracy of LINARIX to offer you reliable products with excellent repeatability (±0.002 % Full Scale Operation).

Programmable Draw Wire Encoder

Thanks to LINARIX, linear position measurement is easy!

MC POSITAL Programmable LINARIX 3 400

In the past, linear measurements were made with pinon and racks that require precise mechanical alignment. This was inconvenient as the pinon could jump and miss a tooth, subsequently delivering the wrong position information.

Easily Scale Your Measurement Range for Analog Versions

  • Programmable versions done simply via UBIFAST
  • Large variety of interfaces: Analog, SSI, CANopen
  • Draw wire adapters available from 1 to 15 M

 

Easily Define the Output of your Linear Sensor

With POSITAL’s LINARIX draw wires, simply press the set one button, pull the cable up to the distance you want to measure, press the set two button, and let the cable retract. This allows for anyone to simply define their own draw wire output (i.e. 0-10V at 0 to 5m or 0 to 4.252m) to match their application.

Programmable Parameters

Your machine and needs may evolve over the time. You may even need to redesign your application or apply new features. That’s why POSITAL has extended the functionality of the UBIFAST configuration tool. They make it easy for you to calculate linear measurement. In just a few clicks you will be able to program the following parameters. Saving you installation and calculation time!

  • •Desired measurement range
  • •Length per revolution

 

UBIFAST will provide your actual linear resolution (i.e. 0.01) based on your installed products.

POSITAL’s products are the result of long discussions with our customers and users. To create simple installation with precise measurement, they have joined the power of their UBIFAST configuration tool with the accuracy of LINARIX to offer you reliable products with excellent repeatability (±0.002 % Full Scale Operation).

This combination is available for Incremental, SSI and Analog output.

Access Management for Your Plant and Machinery

With PILZ’s “Identification and Access Management” portfolio, they offer you a comprehensive range of products, solutions and software for the implementation of safety as well as security tasks. Below you’ll discover more about potential applications, from simple authentication to complex access permissions, and access management through to safe operating mode selection, maintenance safeguarding and safeguarding of data and networks. Experience safety and security in one system!

This solution ensures that a machine cannot resume operation while people are still in the danger zone. The maintenance safeguarding system “key-in-pocket” is designed for machines with danger zones, which are protected by a safety fence and which staff need to access – robot cells for example. In comparison with conventional lockout-tagout (LOTO) systems, maintenance safeguarding with the key-in-pocket solution is implemented via RFID keys with corresponding permissions and a safe list in the PILZ controllers. As a result, it provides a purely electronic restart protection and makes both mechanical interlocking devices and warning tags redundant.
