Novotechnik: Compact Touchless Position Sensors

Novotechnik, U.S. introduces the TFD Series of touchless linear position sensors provide wear-free operation in tight spaces. Maximum sensor dimensions are 40 x 27 x 7 mm thin.

Southborough, MA… Novotechnik, U.S. introduces the TFD Series of touchless linear position sensors provide wear-free operation in tight spaces. Maximum sensor dimensions are 40 x 27 x 7 mm thin.

The TFD-4000 Series utilizes a magnetic position marker to provide a touchless measurement range of 0 to 14, 24 or 50 mm—depending on model. These sensors makes measurements through air and non-magnetic materials. Magnetic position marker mounts to users application.
Key TFD-4000 Series specifications include ingress protection from liquids and dust to IP 67, resolution of 12 bits, repeatability of ≤0.1% of full scale and optional second channel for applications requiring redundancy.
TFD-4000 Series sensors have analog voltage output. They have an operating temperature range of -40°C to +125°C.

Applications include textile machinery, packaging machinery, sheet metal machinery, medical applications, marine, mobile engine management systems, industrial trucks, construction machinery, agricultural and forestry machinery.
