New Low Power Rotary Position Sensor

Applications include robotics, battery powered devices, joy sticks and control valves.

Southborough, MA - Novotechnik U.S. introduces the Contelec Vert-X 21 LP Seriesof low power

sensors. These non-contact angle sensors consume only 300 μA of current at a power supply
level of 3.3 V.

Other key specifications for Vert-X 21 LP include 0 to 360° measurement range, 12-bit resolution,
repeatability to 0.1°, and maximum hysteresis of 0.2°. Power supply range is 1.8 V to 5.5 V. Output
voltage 10 to 90% of power supply is standard with other
percentage values available as an option.

Vert-X 21 LP Series sensors can be ordered as a simple 3 wire
angle sensor or a programmable version with up to two switch
outputs, custom measurement angle, start and end-point
settings, custom characteristic curve and/or sense of rotation.
They feature compact designs of less than 1 inch in diameter,
sealing to IP65 and life is greater than 360 million
movements.

Applications include robotics, battery powered devices, joy
sticks and control valves.

Harmonic Drive Introduces New Lightweight Versions of Select Gearhead Products.

Harmonic Drive LLC, a leader in high precision motion control introduces new lightweight versions of select gearhead products. The new gearheads are ideal for designs where weight is a critical factor. Building on the success of Harmonic Drive LLCs current gear units, new lightweight versions were the next logical evolution of the CS/ SH product lines. With weight reductions of 20-30% without any reduction in torque ratings, the Lightweight (LW) gear units provide exceptional torque density.
