Novotechnik - New 5 mm Flat Angle and Speed Sensors

Vert-X 05E Series sensors measure angles from 0 to 360°, rotational speed and direction.

Southborough, MA… Novotechnik, U.S. introduces the Vert-X 05E Series of dual angle/speed sensors. The series features easy mounting in small and narrow spaces with a 5 mm body depth and mounting flanges with metal inserts.

The sensors also feature measurement only 6 mm from edge of product for close-to-wall measurement applications. Vert-X 05E Series sensors measure angles from 0 to 360°, rotational speed and direction.

Other key specifications include independent linearity to ±0.3% of measurement range, resolution to 12-bits (analog output) and 1,024 pulses per revolution (incremental outputs), repeatability to 0.1°. Measurement speeds are up to 120,000 RPM. Vert-X 05E life is specified as unlimited mechanical movements and 390 years MTBF.

Vert-X 05E output choices include 0.5 to 4.5 V analog as well as incremental including: TTL, differential RS-422, push-pull/HTL and open collector.
Operating temperature range is -40 to +125°C and Vert-X 05E is rated at IP68 for ingress protection. Applications include speed regulation of an electric motor, electric vehicle drive, crane, escalator, flowmeter, pump, fork lift, construction, and agricultural machines.

The ERT150 - Dorner's Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
