Touchless Magnetic Rotary Angle Sensors feature CANopen interface.

November 3, 2014

Comprising single and redundant versions, IP68-rated Vert-X 32E Series has CiA-certified serial communications output and supports real-time control. With permanent magnet secured to rotating shaft, there is no direct mechanical linkage between shaft and measuring system and therefor no wear. Programmable via EasyAdapt Windows® PC-based software, sensor features 0° to 360° measurement range, up to 16-bit resolution, 0.1° or better repeatability, and 0.1° max hysteresis. MTBF is 135 years.

Dual Angle/Speed Sensors feature flat package design.

September 29, 2014

Featuring 5 mm body depth and mounting flanges with metal inserts that facilitate mounting in small/narrow spaces, Vert-X 05E Series measures angles from 0° to 360° as well as rotational speed (up to 120,000 rpm) and direction. IP68-rated sensors measure 6 mm from edge of product for close-to-wall applications and offer linearity to ±0.3% of measurement range, resolution to 12 bits (analog output), and 1,024 pulses per revolution (incremental outputs). Multiple output choices are available. Read More

Open Housing Linear Position Sensors mount in enclosed devices.

June 23, 2014

Comprising 13 mm wide and 11.6 mm high sensors, PTP Series comes in lengths dependent upon application: typically between 10 and 300 mm. Integral guides and clamps facilitate mounting, and other mounting options are available. Also able to be ordered without rod and side-actuated, sensors feature life expectancy of up to 50 million movements, resolution of ≤ 0.01 mm, linearity to ±0.05%, and repeatability of ±0.01 mm. Custom wiper interfaces are available. Read More

Non-Contact Angle Sensors have compact design.

May 5, 2014

To facilitate mounting in tight spaces, Vert-X 1600 Series has 16 mm dia body and mounting flanges with metal inserts. Sensors measure 0° to 360° with full resolution and accuracy at programmed electrical angles as well. Along with independent linearity to ±0.3% of measurement range, features include resolution to 14 bits, repeatability to 0.1°, and life of 50 million movements. Analog and digital options as well as single and redundant versions are available. Read More

Shaft Protected Position Sensors withstand harsh environments.

April 9, 2014

Offering stroke lengths from 50–750 mm, LWX-002 Series provides linearity to 0.04% and repeatability of 0.01 mm. All metal sensor shaft is protected over range of motion with SS304 alloy, 0.9 mm thick stainless steel shield. Backlash-free pivot heads facilitate mounting and permit ±12.5% free movement, while hydraulic shaft seal provides IP67 rating. To compensate for pressure that can build up due to push rod movement, sensors incorporate differential pressure compensation system. Read More

Rotary Magnetic Encoders measure from 0-360 degrees.

January 28, 2014

Supplied in 30 x 50 mm housing, Vert-X 51 Series features 12-, 14-, or 16-bit resolution with repeatability to 0.36° or ±0.1°. Ten output options are available including 0.1–10 V, 0.5–4.5 V, 4–20 mA, CANopen, PWM, and SPI. Encoders are available with up to 2 TTL switch outputs and some versions are programmable with CW/CCW sense of rotation, start and end points, custom characteristic curve, switches, and index point. Operating from -40 to +125°C, IP67-rated units withstand harsh environments. Read More

Flat Angle Sensors have unlimited mechanical life.

November 12, 2013

Supplied in 40 x 27 x 7 mm package sealed against ingress of liquids, dust, and dirt to IP69K, RFD4000 Series has electrical measurement range of 0° to 360°, 12-bit resolution, and repeatability of 0.1°. Magnetic position marker is attached to rotating shaft or part on intended application using 2 mounting holes, and Hall effect microprocessor detects position of magnet and converts angle to voltage output. Series provides flexibility of single, partially or fully redundant versions. Read More
