Novotechnik - New Position Sensor For Hydraulic and Pneumatic Applications

Designed for continuous use at operating pressures up to 350 bar, the Novotechnik TH1 touchless sensors are readily integrated into high-pressure hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders. TH1 transducers provide direct, precise, and absolute measurements from 100 to 4,250 mm with single or multiple position markers.

Southborough, MA…Designed for continuous use at operating pressures up to 350 bar, the Novotechnik TH1 touchless sensors are readily integrated into high-pressure hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders. TH1 transducers provide direct, precise, and absolute measurements from 100 to 4,250 mm with single or multiple position markers.


Analog output options for the TH1 Series are 0.1 to 10 VDC, 0.1 to 20 mA and 4 to 20 mA. Digital interfaces include SSI and Start/Stop.

The TH1 series is highly resistant to shock and vibration - up to 100 g and 20 g respectively. Other key specifications include: Sealing to IP 68, linearity to 10µm, resolution to 1 µm regardless of stroke length, reproducibility to 6 µm and compression peaks to 600 bar.

Applications for the TH1 sensor include fluid power valve position, liquid level measurement, off road agriculture and construction as well as other mobile equipment.

Maplesoft - Free Whitepaper: Developing a Robot Model using System-Level Design

This paper uses NAO, the humanoid robot from Aldebaran Systems, to demonstrate how MapleSim can be used to develop a robot model, and how the model can be further analyzed using the symbolic computation engine within Maple.
