Novotechnik angle and position sensors are integral parts of complex industrial feedback loop applications, and other, motion systems including: Chicago’s Willis Tower, the London Eye, forklifts and even a NASA space probe.
Touchless rotary angle sensors utilize some of many new technologies found in Novotechnik products. Novotechnik’s Novohall technology enables angle sensors to measure without any mechanical wear and through solid and non-solid materials. A magnetic marker attaches to an application’s rotating part and a sensing part with NovoHall technology detects the position of the magnet and converts the detected angle to a usable voltage output. One product family this technology is used in is the RFD4000 Series and enables 12-bit resolution and repeatability of 0.1° or better.
Novotechnik is enhancing its magnetoresistive technology introduced a few years ago by combining it with Hall effect technology. This combined technology give engineers a magnetic encoder which continues to measure rotations after power fails or is removed, all without batteries. This information is stored for years—even without power.
Novotechnik’s combined non-contacting technology is utilized in their RMB3600 Series of magnetic encoders. This series measures up to 16 turns as well as the precise angle within a turn. Once power is applied, the RMB3600 Series is able to measure and to retain turns and angle even during a loss of power. For applications with a need for precision, these sensors deliver 16-bit resolution and linearity of 0.13%. They also provide various analog output options and one or two channels.
Combining new industry leading position sensing technologies and capabilities, Novotechnik continues its history of engineering leadership, and brings products with new abilities and features to market that empower motion control engineers to design solutions that were impossible a short time ago.
Novotechnik is a world leader in the development and manufacture of a wide spectrum of touchless, noncontact, and potentiometric rotary and linear position sensors for motion control in industrial, automotive, aerospace, robotic, and medical equipment applications. These applications include the Segway personal transporter, where Novotechnik engineers worked with the customer to develop a critical application-specific steering sensor.
Novotechnik owes its success to superior engineering and the development of leading technologies resulting in new application capabilities with proven product reliability and accuracy enabling the company to provide its customers with the clear and comprehensive specifications needed by design engineers. These capabilities include linear non-contact, linear inductive and single-turn rotary noncontact using Novostrictive®, Indres®, NOVOPAD™, NovoFoil™, Novohall™, PsP, and Vert-X® proprietary technologies.
Products include Novotechnik’s touchless rotary sensors with no moving parts and a maximum angular resolution of 0.022°. Novotechnik is ISO 9001 certified and was one of the first companies to achieve ISO/TS 16949 certification worldwide.
