With recent additions of the RFC and Vert-x E series, Novotechnik’s lines of noncontact and fully touchless rotary position sensors now include six series of rotary position sensors, suitable for mobile and other harsh environment, limited-space applications. The sensors feature two sensing technologies: noncontact with a rotating shaft found on the RSC-1300, 2200, 2800, and 3700 series, and the company’s touchless technology without a shaft, which features a round position marker that mounts separately and away from the detecting sensor component. Sensors are available from 13 to 48 mm (0.5 to 1.9 in) diameter sealed up to IP69K to operate under adverse conditions. Programmable angular range is 360° with resolution to 14 bits; options include analog, incremental, serial peripheral interface, pulse width modulation, and redundant outputs.
