Programmable, Magnetic Angle Sensors
Novotechnik US has introduced the Vert-X 31E Series of programmable rotary angle sensors. The sensors are touchless magnetic angle sensors with a permanent magnet that can be secured to a rotating shaft, so that there is no direct mechanical linkage between the shaft and the measuring system, and therefore no wear.
The Vert-X 31E Series is programmed through a programming device connected between the sensor and a computer’s USB port and software called EasyAdapt which runs on Windows PCs. Users can select from six default set-ups or use one as a starting point and customize it. Output characteristics including custom characteristic curve, angle range, zero point, and curve- as well as gradient-direction versus direction of rotation can be programmed.
