Rotary Position Sensors
By DE staffMotion Control Machine Building
NewTek RV series designed to ensure the performance accuracy of industrial robotic systems.
Newtek released its RV series of rotary position sensors designed to ensure the performance accuracy of industrial robotic systems. With a shaft that rotates 360° with no stops, the sensors measure shaft angle position over a nominal range of ±30°. The sensor features RVDT technology for non-contact measurement. The series features an operating temperature range of -65°F to 221°F (-55 to 105°C). Units are available in both a size 8 (0.75 inch) and size 11 (1.06 inches) diameter. As the AC-operated rotary position sensor requires external excitation, NewTek NTC-6000 LVDT Signal Conditioner powers the sensor while converting its position output into 4-20mA, 0-5V, 0-10V, or RS-485 format for robotic control systems.
