Novotechnik - New Angle Sensor With Return Spring

Novotechnik, U.S. introduces the SP1600 Series of compact angle sensors. Housing profile to connector is 26 mm.

Southborough, MA… Novotechnik, U.S. introduces the SP1600 Series of compact angle sensors. Housing profile to connector is 26 mm. These sensors convert rotational angle into a voltage output and feature a return spring that compresses in the CW direction and decompresses in CCW.

SP1600 Series sensors have an integrated 3-pin AMP Tyco Micro Quadlock connector and the housing is made of high-grade temperature resistant plastic. Temperature range is -30 to +120°C.
Other key SP1600 Series specifications include a defined electrical angles of 120° and 105° on separate models, nominal resistance of 5 kΩ and linearity of ±2 % of supply voltage. The sensors are sealed to IP 67 with mounting o-ring and life is ≥ 4 million movements.

These sensors are ideal for automotive and off-highway vehicle and other harsh environment applications and a direct replacement for most CTS 500 sensor models.

ST Robotics - R17HS-6, the 6-axis version of the high speed R17 variant

The 6-axis version of the R17HS high speed variant of the R17 robot is now available. As is our policy the 6th axis is an optional bolt-on module. At the same time we have made it even faster and new software eliminates shake and greatly improves repeatability as this video shows. Please see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wG0MeiJ-yE. The video would seem to imply a repeatability of 0.01mm but we are sticking with 0.2mm in the spec. The motor specialist was able to tune the motors from the other side of the pond. My first reaction when we put power on and entered the first commands was to jump back in amazement (and maybe an expletive). Tip speed is now 3m/s; that's 3 times as fast as its nearest competitor yet costs half the price. I love it when a plan comes together.
