Novotechnik - New Touchless Angle Sensors With CanBus Interface
Features include programmable zero point offset, measurement averaging and sign of rotational direction. RFC4800 Series has a resolution of 14-bits across 360°, repeatability of 0.36° and independent linearity of ±0.5% of full scale.

Novotechnik, U.S. introduces the RFC4800 Series of touchless angle sensors measuring angular position up to 360°, revolution counter and speed-with J1939 CANBus interface in addition to CANopen.
Features include programmable zero point offset, measurement averaging and sign of rotational direction. RFC4800 Series has a resolution of 14-bits across 360°, repeatability of 0.36° and independent linearity of ±0.5% of full scale.
J1939 CANBus provides a different feature set than CANopen. The J1939 protocol has transfer fixed at 250 kbit/s and defines shielded twisted pair for cables. While CANopen has a range if data transfer rates allowed. J1939 has peer-to-peer or broadcast signaling and fixed messages rather than configurable. There are other differences too.
Other RFC4800 Series output interfaces include analog voltage and current, as well as digital outputs options-IO-Link, SSI, SPI, and incremental.
Single and multi-channel versions of the RFC4800 Series are available. Sensors are sealed up to IP69K and operating temperature range is -40 to +125 °C. Mean time to failure is 76 years.

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.
