Southborough, MA -- Novotechnik U.S. introduces the Vert-X 51 Series of rotary magnetic encoders which feature 12-, 14- or 16-bit resolution and repeatability to 0.36° or ±0.1° - depending on model.


Measurement range of the Vert-X 51 is 0 to 360° and physical measurements of the housing are 30 mm x 50 mm.

Vert-X 51 Series encoders are ideal for harsh environments with ingress protection to IP 67, withstand shock up to 50 g and vibration to 20 g and have operating and storage temperature range of up to -40 to +125 °C. MTBF is 135+ years.

Ten output options are available including 0.1 to 10 V, 0.5 to 4.5 V, 4 to 20 mA, CANopen, PWM, and SPI. Versions with 5V or 24 V supplies as well as redundant outputs are available.

Vert-X 51 Series is available with up to two TTL switch outputs and some versions are programmable with CW/CCW sense of rotation, start and end points, custom characteristic curve, switches and index point.

Ideal for marine propulsion, off-highway and other applications requiring certifications, the Vert-X 51 CANopen version is certified by four authorities including the American Bureau of Shipping.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
