News & Events


POSIC launches the IT5602L linear encoder, which comes in a tiny SMD-format. Resolution and maximum speed are field-programmable and can be set down to 0.04 um and to 10 m/s respectively. The output signals are A and B in quadrature and an Index-pulse that is synchronized to the A and B signals. Thanks to the eddy-current sensing mechanism, the encoder is insensitive to magnetic fields and therefore particularly suited for integration in rotary and linear direct drives, voice coil actuators, solenoids and other magnetic actuators.

Target markets include industrial and laboratory automation with applications such as pick & place machines, inspection- and test-equipment, robotics and machine-tooling

The IT5602L encoder kit with scales of various lengths and an Evaluation and Programming Tool are available from POSIC’s webshop.

POSIC will exhibit its miniature encoder kits as well as the corresponding programming tool at the SPS/IPC/Drives exposition in Nuremberg from November 28 - 30. We're in Hall 4A, booth number 356.

Visit us in order to program and operate our inductive encoder kits by yourself. You can even compare the linearity and accuracy to a high-end optical encoder !

Interested? Please don't hesitate to contact us for an appointment during the expo! Send an e-mail or call us at +41 32 552 1800.

We are looking forward to meet you in Nürnberg!
