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.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
