Novotechnik - Robust, Accurate Angle Sensors

These sensors use a Hall effect, non-contact principle and are designed for rugged applications where high humidity, dampness, dust and/or vibrations are expected. Accuracy is to 0.35° and repeatability is to 0.05%.

Southborough, MA — Novotechnik U.S. announces the Vert-X 3700 Series of angle sensors housed in a sealed stainless steel housing. These sensors use a Hall effect, non-contact principle and are designed for rugged applications where high humidity, dampness, dust and/or vibrations are expected. Accuracy is to 0.35° and repeatability is to 0.05%.


Other key specifications include measurement range of up to 0 to 360°, sealing to IP 68, up to 14-bit resolution and ±0.1% linearity. Some models are available with full redundancy. Vert-X 3700 Series can be ordered pre-programmed for a specific application's range, within 10° steps, to apply full resolution and accuracy over that electrical angle range. This option is in contrast to sensors offering only a 0 to 360° electrical range—a capability that can save cost over specifying tighter specs for a part specified over a wider electrical range.

Vert-X 3700 Series includes a version where customers can specify index points, sense of rotation- cw or ccw, electrical range and switch outputs.

Operating temperature range is -40 to +85°C, shock and vibration of the Vert-X 3700 are 50 and 20 g respectively. Outputs include 4 to 20 mA, 0.1 to 10 V, 0.5 to 4.5 V, ratiometric voltage, PWM and SPI.

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

The industry's first comprehensive Robot Integrator Program saves robot integrators significant time and cost investments by allowing them to mark each cell compliant with ANSI/RIA R15.06 with the TUV Rheinland Mark. As opposed to a traditional certification or an on-site field labeling, TÜV Rheinland's Robot Integrator Program certifies the knowledge and skill-set of robot integrators in addition to testing robotic cells and processes against ANSI/RIA R15.06. This reduces the need for frequent onsite or off site testing and allows manufacturers to apply a single TÜV Rheinland label to multiple cells. The Robot Integrator Program individually assesses a robot integrator's understanding of the ANSI/RIA R15.06 standard along with the ability to consistently produce compliant robot cells. Following the requirements and procedures of the new program will enable robot integrators to produce individually compliant robotic cells under one serialized TÜV Rheinland Mark, which meets the national electric code and allows acceptance by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) and end users.
