Novotechnik - New Position Sensor For Hydraulic and Pneumatic Applications

Designed for continuous use at operating pressures up to 350 bar, the Novotechnik TH1 touchless sensors are readily integrated into high-pressure hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders. TH1 transducers provide direct, precise, and absolute measurements from 100 to 4,250 mm with single or multiple position markers.

Southborough, MA…Designed for continuous use at operating pressures up to 350 bar, the Novotechnik TH1 touchless sensors are readily integrated into high-pressure hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders. TH1 transducers provide direct, precise, and absolute measurements from 100 to 4,250 mm with single or multiple position markers.


Analog output options for the TH1 Series are 0.1 to 10 VDC, 0.1 to 20 mA and 4 to 20 mA. Digital interfaces include SSI and Start/Stop.

The TH1 series is highly resistant to shock and vibration - up to 100 g and 20 g respectively. Other key specifications include: Sealing to IP 68, linearity to 10µm, resolution to 1 µm regardless of stroke length, reproducibility to 6 µm and compression peaks to 600 bar.

Applications for the TH1 sensor include fluid power valve position, liquid level measurement, off road agriculture and construction as well as other mobile equipment.

ST Robotics - R17HS-6, the 6-axis version of the high speed R17 variant

The 6-axis version of the R17HS high speed variant of the R17 robot is now available. As is our policy the 6th axis is an optional bolt-on module. At the same time we have made it even faster and new software eliminates shake and greatly improves repeatability as this video shows. Please see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wG0MeiJ-yE. The video would seem to imply a repeatability of 0.01mm but we are sticking with 0.2mm in the spec. The motor specialist was able to tune the motors from the other side of the pond. My first reaction when we put power on and entered the first commands was to jump back in amazement (and maybe an expletive). Tip speed is now 3m/s; that's 3 times as fast as its nearest competitor yet costs half the price. I love it when a plan comes together.
