Novotechnik - New 5 mm Flat Angle and Speed Sensors

Vert-X 05E Series sensors measure angles from 0 to 360°, rotational speed and direction.

Southborough, MA… Novotechnik, U.S. introduces the Vert-X 05E Series of dual angle/speed sensors. The series features easy mounting in small and narrow spaces with a 5 mm body depth and mounting flanges with metal inserts.

The sensors also feature measurement only 6 mm from edge of product for close-to-wall measurement applications. Vert-X 05E Series sensors measure angles from 0 to 360°, rotational speed and direction.

Other key specifications include independent linearity to ±0.3% of measurement range, resolution to 12-bits (analog output) and 1,024 pulses per revolution (incremental outputs), repeatability to 0.1°. Measurement speeds are up to 120,000 RPM. Vert-X 05E life is specified as unlimited mechanical movements and 390 years MTBF.

Vert-X 05E output choices include 0.5 to 4.5 V analog as well as incremental including: TTL, differential RS-422, push-pull/HTL and open collector.
Operating temperature range is -40 to +125°C and Vert-X 05E is rated at IP68 for ingress protection. Applications include speed regulation of an electric motor, electric vehicle drive, crane, escalator, flowmeter, pump, fork lift, construction, and agricultural machines.

Servo2Go - Low-cost Tin-Can Stepper Motors from Nippon Pulse feature high torque and compact size

The PF/PFC series tin-can stepping motors are conventional magnet-driven rotary stepper motors with a permanent magnet in their rotor core. Rotating in proportion to the number of pulses sent to the motor, the stepper motor is frequency synchronized and can change speed depending on the frequency of the pulse signal.
