Product description

iC-PVL is an ultra low power magnetic encoder, used for linear and off-axis multiturn position sensing. On main power failure, iC-PVL switches automatically to battery supply and continues scanning the position.

iC-PVL operates with pole wheels or linear scales with a pole width of 1.0 mm up to 5.0 mm. Due to various operating modes, iC-PVL can work with iC-Haus singleturn encoders, as stand-alone SSI or incremental encoder, or links to embedded controllers via I2C.

- Integrated Hall sensors with automatic gain and offset control
- For magnetic scales of 1.0 up to 5.0 mm pole width
