TF1 Series consists of an inductively coupled position marker attached to a moving rod/piece of the user’s application that requires a position measurement and the sensor with operational and programming status LEDs.
Southborough, MA… Novotechnik, U.S. introduces the TF1 Series of touchless position sensors that are based on patented new-inductive technology. The sensors are unaffected by strong magnetic fields and metal flakes or filings present in a user's environment.
The physical properties measured by the TF1 are position, and for some of the digital interfaces: speed and temperature.
Key TF1 Series specifications include stroke lengths of 100 to 1,000 mm, resolution to 1 µm, absolute linearity of ≤ ±0.025% of full scale for analog and ≤ ±100 µm for digital outputs, reproducibility of ≤10 µm for ≤ 400 mm stroke lengths and ≤20 µm for >400 stroke lengths for analog outputs. A high-precision mode for digital outputs features repeatability to <5 µm. It has an update rate of >10kHz—equivalent to <100 µsec.
TF1 Series sensors are plug-in compatible with many existing sensors including magnetostrictive and resistance track sensors.
Other key TF1 Series specifications include operation within specifications with up to 100 g shock and 20 g vibration. The sensors are sealed to IP 67, have an operating temperature range of -40 to +85°C and unlimited mechanical life with floating position marker. Output interfaces include analog voltage or current, SSI, CANopen and IO-Link.
