Novotechnik RSB 3600 Series sensors retain angular position for years without power.
Novotechnik U.S. introduced its RSB 3600 Series of absolute single-turn angle sensors. The non-contact sensors feature a galvanized steel housing and stainless steel shaft with up to 100N working shaft load for HD version. They can also operate at speeds up to 12,000 RPM and are sealed up to IP 69K—depending on version. The EGMR (enhanced giant magnetic resistance) devices can retain their angular position for years without power. The series feature a 36.5mm profile, count to 16 turns, angular position 0 to 360°, 12-bit resolution, repeatability of <0.1° and typical independent linearity of ≤ ±0.8% F.S. Output options are 0.25 to 4.75V; 0.5 to 4.5V; 0.1 to 10V; 4 to 20mA; and 10 to 90% of power supply. The RSB 3600 Series is available in connector or cable versions as well as 5 and 24 V supply models. RSB 3600 Series versions have a MTTF of more than 105 years. All models have operating temperature range of -30 to +85°C and 0 to 98% RH, non-condensing. RSB 3600 Series sensors withstand shock to 50g and vibration to 20g. www.novotechnik.com
