Novotechnik, U.S. (Southborough, MA) announced the addition of the CAN J1939 interface to the RFC4800 Series of touchless angle sensors measuring angular position up to 360°, turn direction, turns, speed and operational status.

The RFC4800 can provide one or two output channels. It can take the place of an optical encoder but with longer life and robustness.

RFC4800 with CAN SAE J1939 output interface features:

  • Ideal for mobile applications
  • Developed as communication protocol for heavy-duty vehicles
  • Status bit that can signal controller if sensor needs replacement
  • Averages programmable number of values to output to reduce external noise if present
  • Revolution counter
  • Programmable resolution to 14 bits or less to adjust amount of data output for angular speed from 0.055 to 2.2°/sec
  • Programmable zero point offset
  • Resolution of 14-bits across 360°
  • Repeatability of ≤ ±0.1°
  • Independent linearity of ±0.5% of full scale

The RFC 4800 is available with a large variety of magnets and connectors. Sensors are sealed up to IP69 and operating temperature range is -40 to +105 °C. Mean time to failure is 843 years. Cable and connector versions are available.
