Robust, Accurate Angle Sensors
Southborough, MA — Novotechnik U.S. announces the Vert-X 3700 Series of angle sensors housed in a sealed stainless steel housing. These sensors use a Hall effect, non-contact principle and are designed for rugged applications where high humidity, dampness, dust and/or vibrations are expected. Accuracy is to 0.35° and repeatability is to 0.05%.
Other key specifications include measurement range of up to 0 to 360°, sealing to IP 68, up to 14-bit resolution and ±0.1% linearity. Some models are available with full redundancy. Vert-X 3700 Series can be ordered pre-programmed for a specific application’s range, within 10° steps, to apply full resolution and accuracy over that electrical angle range. This option is in contrast to sensors offering only a 0 to 360° electrical range—a capability that can save cost over specifying tighter specs for a part specified over a wider electrical range.
Vert-X 3700 Series includes a version where customers can specify index points, sense of rotation- cw or ccw, electrical range and switch outputs.
Operating temperature range is -40 to +85°C, shock and vibration of the Vert-X 3700 are 50 and 20 g respectively. Outputs include 4 to 20 mA, 0.1 to 10 V, 0.5 to 4.5 V, ratiometric voltage, PWM and SPI.
