Southborough, MA… Novotechnik, U.S. introduces the Vert-X 2800 Series of sensors that measure angular position. These sensors convert rotational angle into an analog or digital output—depending on version.

Users can select a stock part to simply measure angle or they can be configured, using a tool connected to your PC called Easy Adapt, to be application-specific. Possible configurations include start- and end-angles for less than 360° maximum range, index point, cw or ccw indication, calibration settings and non-linear curves.
Vert-X 2800 Series sensors are available in single and fully redundant versions. Measurement range is 0 to 360° with repeatability of 0.1°. Available analog outputs are 4 to 20 mA, 0.1 to 10 V, 10 to 90% of supply voltage and 5 to 95% of supply voltage. Digital output choices are SPI or PWM. Up to two programmable TTL-level switches are options.
Other key Vert-X 2800 Series specifications include housing base diameter of 28 mm, up to 14-bit resolution and linearity to ±0.1 % of measurement range. The sensors are sealed to IP 65, life is ≥ 50 million movements and MTTF is over 100 years.
These sensors are ideal for industrial, medical and off-highway vehicle applications with an operating temperature range of -40 to +85°C and high immunity to emissions -meeting or exceeding five EN 61000 and two EN 55000 standards.

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.
