Novotechnik - New High Reliability Angle Sensors

Designed to operate in harsh environments and have high immunity to emissions

Southborough, MA… Novotechnik, U.S. introduces the Contelec brand of Vert-X 8800 Series of non-contact angle sensors. Diameter of the stainless steel housing base is 88 mm.


Vert-X 8800 Series sensors measurement range is 0 to 360° with repeatability of 0.1° and linearity to ±0.1%. Analog and digital output versions include CANopen single and redundant, 0.1 to 10 V, 0.5 to 4.5 V, 4 to 20 mA and 10 to 90% of supply voltage. CANopen versions are CiA certified.

Other key Vert-X 8800 Series specifications include 14-bit resolution and some versions are programmable. Characteristics that can be programmed are index point(s), sense of rotation and angle settable response switches. The sensors are sealed to IP 69K, life is ≥ 360 million movements and MTTF is over 145 years.

These sensors are designed to operate in harsh environments and have high immunity to emissions -meeting or exceeding five EN 61000 and two EN 55000 standards.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
