Southborough, MA… Novotechnik, U.S. introduces the Vert-X 2800 Series of sensors that measure angular position. These sensors convert rotational angle into an analog or digital output. Digital interface options include J1939 CANBus as well as SPI and PWM.

The J1939 CAN bus option enables peer-to-peer or broadcast signaling and is a standard often found in commercial vehicle applications. J1939 is a software protocol associated with CAN bus and provides serial data communications between microprocessor systems connected through the bus.
Vert-X 2800 Series sensors are available in single and fully redundant versions. Measurement range is 0 to 360° with repeatability of 0.1°. Available analog outputs are 4 to 20 mA, 0.1 to 10 V, 10 to 90% of supply voltage and 5 to 95% of supply voltage. Up to two programmable TTL-level switches are options.
Users can select a stock part to simply measure angle or they can be configured, using a tool connected to your PC called Easy Adapt, to be application-specific. Possible configurations include start- and end-angles for less than 360° maximum range, index point, cw or ccw indication, calibration settings and non-linear curves.
Other key Vert-X 2800 Series specifications include housing base diameter of 28 mm, up to 14-bit resolution and linearity to ±0.1 % of measurement range. The sensors are sealed to IP 65, life is ≥ 50 million movements and MTTF is over 100 years.
These sensors are ideal for industrial, medical and off-highway vehicle applications with an operating temperature range of -40 to +85°C.

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
