New High Accuracy Magnetic Encoder
Press release date: January 24, 2014
Southborough, MA -- Novotechnik U.S. introduces the Vert-X 51 Series of rotary magnetic encoders which feature 12-, 14- or 16-bit resolution and repeatability to 0.36° or ±0.1° – depending on model.
Measurement range of the Vert-X 51 is 0 to 360° and physical measurements of the housing are 30 mm x 50 mm.
Vert-X 51 Series encoders are ideal for harsh environments with ingress protection to IP 67, withstand shock up to 50 g and vibration to 20 g and have operating and storage temperature range of up to -40 to +125 °C. MTBF is 135+ years.
Ten output options are available including 0.1 to 10 V, 0.5 to 4.5 V, 4 to 20 mA, CANopen, PWM, and SPI. Versions with 5V or 24 V supplies as well as redundant outputs are available.
Vert-X 51 Series is available with up to two 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.
Ideal for marine propulsion, off-highway and other applications requiring certifications, the Vert-X 51 CANopen version is certified by four authorities including the American Bureau of Shipping.
