Novotechnik, U.S. (Southborough, MA) introduces the Vert-X 2900 Series of sensors that measure angular position. These sensors are available in single or redundant versions. Elongated holes make mounting easier. Features include the following:
- Users can specify configurations including start- and end-angles for less than 360° maximum range, index point, cw or ccw indication and non-linear curves.
- The measurement range is up to 0 to 360° with repeatability of 0.1°; mechanical range is 360° continuous. Available analog outputs are 10 to 90% of supply voltage and 5 to 95% of supply voltage.
- Other key Vert-X 2900 Series specifications include sample rate up to 5 kHz. The sensors are sealed to IP 67, life is ≥ 50 million movements and MTTF is over 650 years.
- These sensors are ideal for industrial, medical and off-highway vehicle applications with an operating temperature range of -40 to +125°C and high immunity to emissions – meeting or exceeding five EN 55022 and EN 61000 standards.
