Netzer Introduce New VLX-60 Absolute Encoder for Harsh Environments

The combination of high precision, low profile and, low weight has made Netzer Precision encoders highly reliable and particularly well suited to a wide variety of industrial automation applications.

The VLX-60 is a new member of the VLX series of Electric Encoders™ a product line based on Netzer Precision Motion Sensor proprietary technology. EE products are characterized by features that enable unparalleled performance including:


• Low profile (<10 mm)
• Hollow shaft (Stator / Rotor)
• No bearings or other contact elements
• High resolution and unparalleled precision
• Very low weight
• Holistic signal generation
• Digital interfaces for absolute position
• Extremely low profile & weight
• Auto calibration option
• Hollow floating shaft; no bearing or other contacts
• High tolerance to temperature extremes, shock, moisture, EMI, RFI and magnetic fields

The holistic structure of the Electric Encoder™ makes it unique: Its output reading is the averaged outcome of the entire area of the rotor. This feature allows the EE a tolerant mechanical mounting and to deliver outstanding precision.

Due to the absence of components such as ball bearings, flexible couplers, glass discs, light sources and detectors along with very low power consumption enables the EE to deliver virtually failure-free performance in nearly all types of conditions.

The internally shielded, DC- operated EE includes an electric field generator, a field receiver, sinusoidal-shaped dielectric rotor, and processing electronics.

The EE output is a digital serial synchronous with absolute position single turn.

This combination of high precision, low profile and, low weight has made Netzer Precision encoders highly reliable and particularly well suited to a wide variety of industrial automation applications.

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.
