Novotechnik: New Multi-Turn Sensors With A Clutch

The clutch produces a click sound to let users know they have reached end-of-range and it permits continued turn past end-scale.

Southborough, MA… Novotechnik, U.S. introduces the ML Series of Multi-Turn Rotary Sensors. These sensors feature a unique friction clutch instead of the end-stops typically found on mechanical multi-turn sensors. The clutch produces a click sound to let users know they have reached end-of-range and it permits continued turn past end-scale. Compare this feature to a device simply breaking as it is turned past its end-stops.

Compact in size, ML Series sensors have a ½ inch square profile. Other key specifications include models with 6, 10, 25, 50 or 100 turns, bushing mounting and sealing to IP 65. Life is >15 million turns. Linearity is to ±0.25% of full scale range. Resolution is better than 0.1% with repeatability of ≤ 0.17%.
