Novotechnik U.S. Introduced its Vert-X 22E Series of programmable touchless rotary sensors that use a magnetic pick up to eliminate direct mechanical linkage between the shaft and the measuring system. The series can be programmed for the slope of the linear output, zero and end-points, mid-point and switch steps. Those who choose to program the Vert-X 22E sensor themselves can use a programming tool called Vert-X Easy Adapt with their PC to choose between six modifiable linear output curve characteristics.

Key specifications for Vert-X 22E include 0 to 360° measurement range limits; 5V and 24V supply versions; up to two switch outputs; resolution to 14-bit; repeatability of ≤ 0.1 degree, and hysteresis of ≤ 0.1 degree. MTBF of 2.7 or 5.8 million hours depending on version, output options include voltage of 10 to 90% of power supply, SPI, and PWM. Redundant output versions are offered as well.
