Novotechnik - New Compact Angle Sensors

Vert-X 1600 Series sensors measure 0 to 360° with full resolution and accuracy at programmed electrical angles as well.

Southborough, MA… Novotechnik, U.S. introduces the Vert-X 1600 Series of non-contact angle sensors. The series features easy mounting in tight spaces with a 16 mm diameter body and mounting flanges with metal inserts.


Vert-X 1600 Series sensors measure 0 to 360° with full resolution and accuracy at programmed electrical angles as well. Other key specifications include independent linearity to ±0.3% of measurement range, resolution to 14-bits, repeatability to 0.1° and life of 50 million movements.

Analog and digital options as well as single and redundant versions are available. Vert-X 1600 output choices include 0.25 to 4.75 V, 0.5 to 4.5 V, PWM, SPI, SSI and Incremental (A,B,Z).

Operating temperature range is -40 to +105°C and applications include servo drives, dancer arm machinery and adjustable medical equipment such as operating tables, dental chairs and MRI scanners.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
