Novotechnik U.S. introduces the Vert-X 22E Series of programmable touchless rotary sensors. These sensors use a magnetic pick up that is secured to the rotating object, so that there is no direct mechanical linkage between the shaft and the measuring system, and therefore no wear.
Condition monitoring specialists SENSONICS have added a new option to their established range of proximity probes which virtually eliminates the detrimental effects on measurements caused by both side and rear targets. The PRSVBeam proximity probe has an innovative tip design which overcomes the problems associated with traditional probe designs, such as poor accuracy, system non-linearities and extended set-up time.
Operating as standalone controller or integrated into final product as sub-board, EPOS2 36/2 Motherboard features snap-apart construction with 11 nodes connected via CAN-Open, allowing multi-axis customization on single board. Two digital inputs and 1 digital output are mapped on board with additional I/O expansion module as option. In addition to motor speed, torque, and position control, EPOS2 36/2 is capable of synchronously running coordinated multi-axis path dictated by interpolating points.
