Novotechnik US introduced the Vert-X 05E Series of magnetic rotary position sensors with 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.
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.
