Analog ATEX-Certified Rotary Encoders for use in Explosive Atmospheres

POSITAL analog ATEX-certified absolute encoder is designed to operate safely in atmospheres where there are potentially dangerous levels of explosive gases or dust.

Encoders for Hazardous Locations


POSITAL analog ATEX-certified absolute encoder is designed to operate safely in atmospheres where there are potentially dangerous levels of explosive gases or dust. These devices are part of the IXARC family of magnetic rotary sensors and are available in single- or multiturn versions. Rugged, reliable and highly accurate, these devices can be ordered with a wide range of mounting and coupling options that ensure that they can be installed in zones 1 and 21 (as defined from the ATEX directive).

• Certified for Underground Mines (Group I) and Other Industries (Group II)
• Housing Material: Aluminum, Stainless Steel (316 AISI)
• Ex-proof "d" Flameproof Enclosure
• Removable Connection Cap
• Resolution up to 12 bit

The ATEX certified encoders are available with the following interfaces:
• Analog-Current: 0 - 20 mA or 4 - 20 mA
• Analog-Voltage: 0 - 5 V, 0 - 10 V, 0.5 - 4.5 V or 0.5 - 9.5 V

POSITAL offers unique sensors to meet the needs of industries such as:
• Oil and Gas
• Mining
• Agriculture
• Chemical Plants
• Milling Operations


Finding the right IXARC sensor for a particular application is straightforward.
