New video from Novotechnik: Rotary position sensors for mobile machinery

 

As mechanisation and automation systems for mobile machinery used in construction, agriculture, municipal and related industries become progressively more sophisticated, the need for fit for purpose position sensor technology increases. Addressing these challenges, where some of the toughest environmental conditions combine with the need for upmost reliability, compact installation, safety and cost-efficiency, Novotechnik – the advanced measurement technology leader – manufactures precision magnetic rotary position sensors in long-lifetime, non-contacting and touchless designs. These sensor technologies are showcased in a new video that demonstrates their principle of operation, application potential as well as their development, production, and testing.

With comprehensive sales and technical support from Variohm EuroSensor, Novotechnik’s exclusive UK distribution partner, these sensors feature shaft-driven designs with housed, non-contacting magnet and sensor electronics – or completely touchless design with separate position marker magnets and fully encapsulated sensor electronics. Especially robust and well suited to mobile machinery positioning mechanics for lift and link arms, cams, cranks and steering etc., typical specifications throughout the range include rotation angle up to 360 degrees with 14-bit resolution and IP67 to IP69K protection ratings and operational temperatures from -40 to +125° C. Flexibility to match all control systems includes a choice of voltage, current and ratiometric outputs as well as CANopen or CAN SAE J1939 bus interfaces with Micro Quadlock and other industry-standard connectors for installation convenience. In addition, their durability is assured with vibration ratings to 20 g (IEC 600658-2-6) as well as shock to 50 g (IEC 68068-2-27).

Variohm EuroSensor is a manufacturer, distributor and supply chain partner offering an extensive range of position, force, pressure, load, and temperature sensor technologies – for cost effective solutions to demanding measurement applications across industry, construction, agriculture, motorsports, research and more.
