Novotechnik introduces the Vert-X 2800 Series
Featured Product from Novotechnik U.S., Inc.
New Customizable Angle Sensors
Novotechnik, U.S. introduces the Vert-X 2800 Series of sensors that measure angular position. These sensors convert rotational angle into an analog or digital output. Digital interface options include J1939 CANBus as well as SPI and PWM.
The J1939 CAN bus option enables peer-to-peer or broadcast signaling and is a standard often found in commercial vehicle applications. J1939 is a software protocol associated with CAN bus and provides serial data communications between microprocessor systems connected through the bus.
Vert-X 2800 Series sensors are available in single and fully redundant versions. Measurement range is 0 to 360° with repeatability of 0.1°. Available analog outputs are 4 to 20 mA, 0.1 to 10 V, 10 to 90% of supply voltage and 5 to 95% of supply voltage. Up to two programmable TTL-level switches are options.
Users can select a stock part to simply measure angle or they can be configured, using a tool connected to your PC called Easy Adapt, to be application-specific
Other key Vert-X 2800 Series specifications include housing base diameter of 28 mm, up to 14-bit resolution and linearity to ±0.1 % of measurement range. The sensors are sealed to IP 65, life is ≥ 50 million movements and MTTF is over 100 years.
These sensors are ideal for industrial, medical and off-highway vehicle applications with an operating temperature range of -40 to +85°C.

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.
