Novotechnik - New Angle Sensors With Easy Mounting

Users can specify configurations including start- and end-angles for less than 360° maximum range, index point, cw or ccw indication and non-linear curves.

Southborough, MA… Novotechnik, U.S. introduces the Vert-X 2900 Series of sensors that measure angular position. These sensors are available in single or redundant versions. Elongated holes make mounting easier.

Users can specify configurations including start- and end-angles for less than 360° maximum range, index point, cw or ccw indication and non-linear curves.
Measurement range is up to 0 to 360° with repeatability of 0.1° Mechanical range is 360° continuous. Available analog outputs are 10 to 90% of supply voltage and 5 to 95% of supply voltage.
Other key Vert-X 2900 Series specifications include sample rate up to 5 kHz. The sensors are sealed to IP 67, life is ≥ 50 million movements and MTTF is over 650 years.
These sensors are ideal for industrial, medical and off-highway vehicle applications with an operating temperature range of -40 to +125°C and high immunity to emissions -meeting or exceeding five EN 55022 and EN 61000 standards.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
