New Low Power Rotary Position Sensor

Applications include robotics, battery powered devices, joy sticks and control valves.

Southborough, MA - Novotechnik U.S. introduces the Contelec Vert-X 21 LP Seriesof low power

sensors. These non-contact angle sensors consume only 300 μA of current at a power supply
level of 3.3 V.

Other key specifications for Vert-X 21 LP include 0 to 360° measurement range, 12-bit resolution,
repeatability to 0.1°, and maximum hysteresis of 0.2°. Power supply range is 1.8 V to 5.5 V. Output
voltage 10 to 90% of power supply is standard with other
percentage values available as an option.

Vert-X 21 LP Series sensors can be ordered as a simple 3 wire
angle sensor or a programmable version with up to two switch
outputs, custom measurement angle, start and end-point
settings, custom characteristic curve and/or sense of rotation.
They feature compact designs of less than 1 inch in diameter,
sealing to IP65 and life is greater than 360 million

Applications include robotics, battery powered devices, joy
sticks and control valves.

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.
