Novotechnik - Flat Magnetic Angle Sensors

The sensors are touchless magnetic angle sensors with a permanent magnet that can be secured to an application’s rotating shaft, so that there is no direct mechanical linkage between the shaft and the measuring system, and therefore no wear.

Southborough, MA - Novotechnik U.S. introduces the Vert-X 05E Series of magnetic rotary position sensors with compact, flat housing. Interfaces include analog, SPI and incremental. The Series is available in single and redundant versions.


The sensors are touchless magnetic angle sensors with a permanent magnet that can be secured to an application's rotating shaft, so that there is no direct mechanical linkage between the shaft and the measuring system, and therefore no wear.

Key specifications for Vert-X 05E include 5 mm profile, 0 to 360° measurement range, repeatability of 0.1° or better, and maximum hysteresis of 0.1°. Sample rate is up to 5 kHz and its active measurement region extends to within 6 mm from edge of housing.

The Vert-X 05E Series includes 5 and 24 V supply models. Analog outputs are 0.5 to 4.5 V for the 24 version and 10 to 90% of supply voltage for 5 V version. Positive output for CW or CCW rotation direction is achieved by flipping the assembly over.

Vert-X 05E versions have a MTBF of 668 years. All models feature an ingress protection rating of IP 68 and operating range of -40 to +125°C.

Harmonic Drive Introduces New Lightweight Versions of Select Gearhead Products.

Harmonic Drive LLC, a leader in high precision motion control introduces new lightweight versions of select gearhead products. The new gearheads are ideal for designs where weight is a critical factor. Building on the success of Harmonic Drive LLCs current gear units, new lightweight versions were the next logical evolution of the CS/ SH product lines. With weight reductions of 20-30% without any reduction in torque ratings, the Lightweight (LW) gear units provide exceptional torque density.
