Novotechnik Programmable rotary sensors
The Vert-X 31E series of programmable rotary sensors are touchless magnetic angle sensors with a permanent magnet that can be secured to an application’s rotating shaft. There is no direct mechanical linkage between the shaft and the measuring system and therefore no wear. The sensors work through air or nonmagnetic materials with a gap between magnet and sensor. The maximum gap has been increased to 0.5-in between sensor and magnet. For mission-critical or safety applications, the sensors provide a flag by lowering the output signal to a specific level outside the normal electrical range in the rare case the magnet is damaged or the sensor’s magnetic actuator is outside the valid operating range.
