New Rotary Position Sensors with Programmable Switches

Southborough, MA - Novotechnik, U.S. introduces the RFC4800 Series of touchless rotary angle sensors that provide absolute, rotary position. It is available with two programmable switch outputs on the analog version.

The RFC4800 Series utilizes a magnetic pickup to provide a touchless measurement range of 0 to 360°. Other key specifications include 4 to 20 mA current output, sealed to the IP 67 standard, resolution to 12 bits, and independent linearity of ±0.5%.

Switch characteristics include two PNP positive switched outputs, width of switching zone is user programmable, data retention is a minimum of 50 years, edge width of switch function is less than or equal to 0.1° and accuracy of switch edges is ±1°.

Magnetic marker mounts to a shaft on users application up to 25 mm from sensor.

Designed to withstand shock and vibration up to 100G/20G, RFC4800 Series sensors have an operating temperature range of –40°C to +85°C.
