STAC6-Q-H – Advanced Step Motor Drive for Hazardous Locations

The STAC6 offers best-in-class anti-resonance that ensures optimal performance of the step motor over the widest speed range. The drive is powered by single-phase 120 VAC which generates a nominal 160 volt DC internal bus voltage capable of driving the highest torque NEMA 34 and 42 frame step motors on the market. Features include:

Posital’s New ATEX/IECEx Graded Inclination Sensor

POSITAL has extended its TILTIX family of inclinometers (tilt sensors) to include explosion-proof models designed to operate safely in environments that contain potentially dangerous levels of explosive dust or gases. These devices have been certified in compliance with IECEx and ATEX directives and are suitable for use in mines, oil and gas facilities, agricultural applications, chemical plants, woodworking factories and milling operations.

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. 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).

New Profinet Interface for POSITAL’s Explosion-Proof Rotary Sensors

POSITAL has added an optional Profinet communications interface to its range of explosion-proof IXARC rotary encoders. These devices have been designed to comply with ATEX/IECEx directives for Category 3 electrical products and are suitable for Zone 1 and Zone 21 conditions (potential exposure to hazardous levels of explosive gases and dust concentrations). Areas of application for these encoders include oil and gas facilities, underground mines, chemical plants, milling operations and grain-handling facilities.
