Novotechnik - New High Accuracy Linear Position Sensors

Novotechnik U.S. introduces the TE1 Series of absolute linear position sensors, with integrated microprocessor and associated circuitry to provide signal conditioning for a current or voltage output signal.

Southborough, MA - Novotechnik U.S. introduces the TE1 Series of absolute linear position sensors, with integrated microprocessor and associated circuitry to provide signal conditioning for a current or voltage output signal.


The signal conditioned output enables the TE1 Series to have long cable runs without substantial signal loss and makes output connections a cinch with only signal and ground connections to make.

The TE1 Series includes versions with and without return spring. Ball coupling is included for backlash- and shear force free operation. Housing profile of the TE1 Series is a compact 0.70 in (18 mm). Cable and connector versions are standard.

Key specifications for the TE1 Series include 25 to 150 mm measurement range for both rod and rod with return spring versions. Resolution is unlimited and repeatability is 0.002 mm. Linearity is to ± 0.075% of full scale. Four output options are available: 0 to 10 V, 10 to 0 V, 4 to 20 mA and 20 to 4 mA. Sensor life is >100 million movements.

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.
