Novotechnik - Fully Redundant Mobile Angle Sensors

Novotechnik, U.S. introduces the RSA3200 Series of Hall effect angle sensors feature auto-diagnostics, fully redundant versions and ultra-EMC tolerance for use in harsh environments and high reliability applications.

Southborough, MA... Novotechnik, U.S. introduces the RSA3200 Series of Hall effect angle sensors feature auto-diagnostics, fully redundant versions and ultra-EMC tolerance for use in harsh environments and high reliability applications.

Measurement angle of the RSA3200 Series is factory programmable for range maximum between 60° to 360°. Optional linkage lever that attaches to shaft, provides additional mounting options.
Output versions are CANopen, SAE J1939 as well as analog: 0.25 to 4.75, 0.5 to 4.5 V and 4 to 20 mA. Resolution is 12- or 14-bit and repeatability is typically ≤ ±0.36° for CANopen output and ≤±0.1° for all other outputs.
Compact design, sealing to IP 67/ IP6K9K for housing and a stainless steel D-shaft also contribute to making the RSA3200 ideally suited to automotive, marine and off-highway vehicle applications. Suitable for safety applications based on conformance to DIN EN ISO 13849. Electrical connector is a Micro Quadlock system.
The RSA3200 Series conforms to ISO 11452 and ECE standards for EMC immunity including pulses and interference fields. Operating temperature range of the RSA3200 Series is -40 to +125 °C, withstands shock and vibration up to 50 g and 20 g respectively. Life is >30 million movements and MTTF is ≥ 300 years.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
