Novotechnik’s Vert-X 37E sensor series feature IP68 rating, linearity less than 0.3% and repeatability less than 0.1°.
Novotechnik U.S. released its Vert-X 37E Series of programmable touchless rotary sensors that are hermetically sealed, without any moving seals, to the IP68 rating standard. The absolute sensor series can be programmed for the slope of the linear output, zero and end-points, mid-point and switch steps. The Vert-X 37E’s feature set include 0 to 360° measurement range limits, 5V and 24V supply versions, up to two switch outputs, resolution to 14-bit, linearity is ≤ ±0.3% and repeatability of ≤ 0.1°. MTTF is more than 50 years. Output options include 4 to 20mA, 0.1 to 10V, 0 to 4.5V, 10 to 90% of supply voltage, SPI and PWM.
