New Programmable Rotary Position Sensors

Vert-X 22E Series can be programmed by customers or at the factory for the slope of the linear output, zero and end-points, mid-point and switch steps.

Southborough, MA - 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.


Vert-X 22E Series can be programmed by customers or at the factory for the slope of the linear output, zero and end-points, mid-point and switch steps. What this means is that customers can optimize this angle sensor for their specific application. These sensors can help achieve cost savings by eliminating the need for other components to specify the angles they want to measure from and to, choose an intermediate plateau or not, sense of rotation function (CW or CCW), V-output function and switch functions.

Customers who choose to program the Vert-X 22E Series themselves can use a programming tool called
Vert-X Easy Adapt with their PC to choose between six modifiable linear output curve characteristics.

Key specifications for Vert-X 22E include 0 to 360° measurement range limits, 5V and 24V supply versions, up to two switch outputs, resolution to 14-bit, repeatability of ≤ 0.1°, and hysteresis of ≤ 0.1°.

MTBF is 2.7 or 5.8 million hours depending on version. Output options include voltage of 10 to 90% of power supply, SPI, and PWM. Redundant output versions are offered as well.

Vert-X 22E Series sensors are absolute sensors so they retain their values even after power interruptions.

They have compact designs of 0.866 inch diameter. Other Vert-X Series are available and have larger or
smaller dimensions depending on the model.

Discover how human-robot collaboration can take flexibility to new heights!

Humans and robots can now share tasks - and this new partnership is on the verge of revolutionizing the production line. Today's drivers like data-driven services, decreasing product lifetimes and the need for product differentiation are putting flexibility paramount, and no technology is better suited to meet these needs than the Omron TM Series Collaborative Robot. With force feedback, collision detection technology and an intuitive, hand-guided teaching mechanism, the TM Series cobot is designed to work in immediate proximity to a human worker and is easier than ever to train on new tasks.
