Novotechnik - New Angle Sensors For Mission Critical Applications

Novotechnik, U.S. introduces the RFC4800 Series of touchless rotary angle sensors that provide absolute, rotary position. Partial and fully redundant versions are ISO-pulses and ISO 11452 tested for safety and mission critical applications.

Southborough, MA… Novotechnik, U.S. introduces the RFC4800 Series of touchless rotary angle sensors that provide absolute, rotary position. Partial and fully redundant versions are ISO-pulses and ISO 11452 tested for safety and mission critical applications.

The RFC4800 Series utilizes a magnetic pickup to provide a touchless measurement range of 0 to 360° and makes measurements through air and non-magnetic materials. A magnetic pickup mounts to a shaft on users application with seven different size markers available for dimensional flexibility and to optimize detection for different applications.
Key specifications include ingress protection from liquids and dust to the IP 69K standard, resolution of 14 bits, repeatability of 0.36° and independent linearity of ±0.5 %.
A good degree of customization is built into the RFC4800 Series. Offset, scale, direction of rotation, steps over position measurement range, reporting of speed by channel, limit switches and their initial state as well as baud rate are all factory programmable.

RFC4800 Series sensors with analog and digital output versions include CANOpen and IO-Link. They have an operating temperature range of -40°C to +125°C. Cable and connector versions are available.

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.
