Novotechnik - New Compact, Tough Angle Sensors

Novotechnik, U.S. introduces the Vert-X 1600 Series of sensors that measure angular position and are compact housing base diameter of 16 mm.

Southborough, MA… Novotechnik, U.S. introduces the Vert-X 1600 Series of sensors that measure angular position and are compact housing base diameter of 16 mm.


Vert-X 1600 Series sensors These sensors convert rotational angle into an analog or digital output. Measurement range is 0 to 360° with 14-bit resolution and repeatability of 0.1°. Available analog outputs are 10 to 90% of supply voltage and 5 to 95% of supply voltage. Digital interface options include SPI and PWM.

The sensors are sealed to IP 65, life is ≥ 50 million movements and MTTF is 668 years. Redundant versions of the Vert-X 1600 are available. A 6 mm D-Shaped shaft and two reinforced through-holes enable easy mounting.

These sensors are ideal for industrial, medical, off-highway vehicle and other applications with an operating temperature range of -40 to +125°C will operate with up to 10 N axial or radial shaft load.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
