Novotechnik's new Vert-X E Series touchless magnetic angle sensors feature a permanent magnet that is secured to the rotating object (usually a shaft) by the customer, so that there is no direct mechanical linkage between the shaft and the measuring system, and therefore no wear.
The touchless angle sensors are especially useful in applications in harsh environments, where physical contact between the rotary sensor and the object 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 encoders, VertÐ X E Series rotary sensors are significantly less susceptible to external influences such as shock, vibration, dust or fluids.
