The new Vert-X 2800 Series of sensors from Novotechnik, U.S. measure angular position, converting rotational angle into an analog or digital output, depending on the version.
Users can select a stock part to simply measure angle or they can be configured, using a tool connected to a PC called Easy Adapt, to be application-specific. Possible configurations include start- and end-angles for less than 360° maximum range, index point, clockwise or counterclockwise indication, calibration settings and non-linear curves.
Vert-X 2800 Series sensors are available in single and fully redundant versions. Measurement range is 0 to 360° with repeatability of 0.1°. Available analog outputs are 4 to 20 mA, 0.1 to 10 V, 10 to 90% of supply voltage and 5 to 95% of supply voltage. Digital output choices are SPI or PWM. Up to two programmable TTL-level switches are options.
Other key Vert-X 2800 Series specifications include housing base diameter of 28 mm, up to 14-bit resolution and linearity to ±0.1 % of measurement range. The sensors are sealed to IP 65, life is ≥ 50 million movements and MTTF is over 100 years.
These sensors can be used in industrial, medical and off-highway vehicle applications with an operating temperature range of -40 to +85°C and high immunity to emissions –meeting or exceeding five EN 61000 and two EN 55000 standards.
