Novotechnik - New Angle Sensor With Return Spring

Novotechnik, U.S. introduces the SP1600 Series of compact angle sensors. Housing profile to connector is 26 mm.

Southborough, MA… Novotechnik, U.S. introduces the SP1600 Series of compact angle sensors. Housing profile to connector is 26 mm. These sensors convert rotational angle into a voltage output and feature a return spring that compresses in the CW direction and decompresses in CCW.

SP1600 Series sensors have an integrated 3-pin AMP Tyco Micro Quadlock connector and the housing is made of high-grade temperature resistant plastic. Temperature range is -30 to +120°C.
Other key SP1600 Series specifications include a defined electrical angles of 120° and 105° on separate models, nominal resistance of 5 kΩ and linearity of ±2 % of supply voltage. The sensors are sealed to IP 67 with mounting o-ring and life is ≥ 4 million movements.

These sensors are ideal for automotive and off-highway vehicle and other harsh environment applications and a direct replacement for most CTS 500 sensor models.

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.
