Designing Endless Summer Waves

Touchless Rotary Sensors
Our family of touchless angle sensors feature a permanent magnet that is secured to a rotating object - usually the application's shaft. The sensor does not wear because there is no mechanical connection between it and the shaft. Sensors are sized from 13 to 90 mm to cover most every application.
Novotechnik's Vert-X E Series feature a permanent magnet that is secured to the rotating object (usually a shaft) by the customer, so there is no direct mechanical linkage between the shaft and the measuring system (the sensor and embedded microprocessor) and therefore no wear.
The touchless angle sensors are especially useful in applications in harsh environments, where physical contact between the sensor and rotating oblect is not possible. Vert-X E sensors are absolute sensors so they retain their values even after power interruptions.
These sensors feature compact designs, sealing to IP69 and the measurement angle is factory programmable. Plus, in comparison with optical sensors, Vert-X E Series rotary semsors are significantly less susceptable to external influences such as shock, vibration, dust and fluids.

Novotechnik - the technique of being better
Novotechnik introduced the potentiometer into the general machine engineering sector in the 1950s. Since then, the company developed technology used in position transducers and rotary and linear potentiometers that set the standard with outstanding linearity and reliability over an extended operating life.
Today, Novotechnik has developed new technologies that are raising the standard, bringing a new level of linearity and reliability to non-contacting applications.
An international sensor and transducer manufacturing company, Novotechnik's US operations are headquartered in Southborough, Massachusetts while the Automotive Division is located in Livonia, Michigan. Contelec and Novotechnik are divisions of the Siedle Group.
The company develops and produces a wide variety of rotary, and linear position sensors using contacting and non-contacting technologies for a wide range of motion control applications in the automotive, machine engineering, plastics, medical equipment, hydraulic, pneumatic, medical products and control industries.
Novotechnik is world wide certified as one of the first companies to achieve the ISO/TS 16949 certification. This complies with the requirements of the automobile industry - VDA 6.1, QS9000, EAQF, AVSQ - regarding quality management systems.
