New Angle Sensors With 10 Output Choices

Output options for analog, digital, redundant and switch outputs are standard.

Southborough, MA… Novotechnik, U.S. introduces the RFC4800 Series of touchless rotary angle sensors that provide absolute, rotary position. Output options for analog, digital, redundant and switch outputs are standard.


The RFC4800 Series utilizes a magnetic pickup to provide a touchless measurement range of 0 to 360°. Key specifications include ingress protection from liquids and dust to the IP 69K standard, resolution to 12 bits, repeatability of 0.1°and independent linearity of ±0.5 %.

Outputs include SSI, Incremental, SPI, 0.1 to 10 V, 4 to 20 mA, 0.25 to 4.75 V - ratiometric to supply, 0.5 to 4.5 V - ratiometric, 2 PNP switches and redundant analog.

Switches feature positive switched outputs, width of switching zone is user- or pre-programmable, edge width of switch ≤ 0.1° and accuracy of switch edges is ±1°.

Magnetic marker mounts to a shaft on users application up to 25 mm from sensor.

Designed to withstand shock and vibration up to 100G/20G, RFC4800 Series sensors have an operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
