Customizable angle sensor series for industrial, medical applications
Novotechnik’s Vert-X 2800 Series of sensors are designed to measure angular position and convert rotational angle into an analog or digital output. These sensors are designed for industrial, medical and off-highway vehicle applications with an operating temperature range of -40 to 85°C and high immunity to emissions. Users can select a stock part to simply measure angle or they can be configured, using a tool called Easy Adapt, to be application-specific. Possible configurations include start- and end-angles for less than 360-deg maximum range, index point, cw or ccw indication, calibration settings, and non-linear curves. Vert-X 2800 Series sensors are available in single and fully redundant versions. Measurement range is 0- to 360-deg and available analog outputs are 4 to 20 mA, 0.1 to 10 V, 10 to 90% of supply voltage and 5 to 95% of supply voltage. Digital output choices are SPI or PWM. Up to two programmable TTL-level switches are options. Other key Vert-X 2800 Series specifications include housing base diameter of 28 mm, up to 14-bit resolution and linearity to ±0.1 % of measurement range. The sensors are sealed to IP 65, life is ≥ 50 million movements and MTTF is over 100 years.
