Rotary position sensor for confined spaces

Rotary position sensor for confined spaces With the launch of the contact-free, absolute Vert-X 13 angle sensor, Variohm is defining a new class of rotary position sensors, combining aspects of miniaturisation, ruggedness and precision in a compact sensor. The Vert-X 13 absolute rotary position sensor is ideal for applications in confined spaces. At a diameter of just 13 mm, the sensor, based on a magnetic, contact-free measuring principle, is so compact that it is ideal for detecting the angles of swinging and gripper arms or for precisely measuring camera positions. In addition, the Vert-X 13 has a long life, even in the most demanding environments. The reasons for this are the stainless steel case and shaft and the smooth-running, precision ball bearings, which permit radial and axial shaft loadings of up to 5 N. Another feature contributing to the long life and lack of susceptibility to condensation, is the contact-free, magnetic and absolute measurement system. This allows customer-specific measurement angles up to 360deg, delivers up to 14-bit resolution across the entire measurement range and has impressive repeatability.
