Novotechnik - New Angle Sensors With Easy Mounting

Users can specify configurations including start- and end-angles for less than 360° maximum range, index point, cw or ccw indication and non-linear curves.

Southborough, MA… Novotechnik, U.S. introduces the Vert-X 2900 Series of sensors that measure angular position. These sensors are available in single or redundant versions. Elongated holes make mounting easier.

Users can specify configurations including start- and end-angles for less than 360° maximum range, index point, cw or ccw indication and non-linear curves.
Measurement range is up to 0 to 360° with repeatability of 0.1° Mechanical range is 360° continuous. Available analog outputs are 10 to 90% of supply voltage and 5 to 95% of supply voltage.
Other key Vert-X 2900 Series specifications include sample rate up to 5 kHz. The sensors are sealed to IP 67, life is ≥ 50 million movements and MTTF is over 650 years.
These sensors are ideal for industrial, medical and off-highway vehicle applications with an operating temperature range of -40 to +125°C and high immunity to emissions -meeting or exceeding five EN 55022 and EN 61000 standards.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
