New! Programmable Angle Sensors
Southborough, MA — Novotechnik U.S. introduces the Vert-X 37E Series of programmable touchless rotary sensors. These sensors use a magnetic pick up that is secured to the rotating object, so that there is no direct mechanical linkage between the shaft and the measuring system, and therefore no wear.
The Vert-X 37E Series is hermetically sealed, without any moving seals, to IP68 and therefore provides long life even under the harshest water, dust and oil environments.
Vert-X 37E Series can be programmed by customers or at the factory for the slope of the linear output, zero and end-points, mid-point and switch steps, so customers can order angle sensors optimized for their specific application. These sensors can help achieve time and cost savings by eliminating the need for other components to specify the angle end points, choose an intermediate plateau, sense of rotation function, CW or CCW or create V-output.
Key specifications for Vert-X 37E include 0 to 360° measurement range limits, 5V and 24V supply versions, up to two switch outputs, resolution to 14-bit, linearity is ≤ ±0.3% and repeatability of ≤ 0.1°. MTTF is over 50 years. Output options include 4 to 20 mA, 0.1 to 10 V, 0 to 4.5 V, 10 to 90% of supply voltage, SPI, and PWM. Redundant output versions are offered as well.
Vert-X 37E Series sensors are absolute sensors so they retain their values even after power interruptions. They have compact designs of 1.45 inch diameter. Other Vert-X Series’ sensors are available which have larger or smaller dimensions depending on the model.
