Novotechnik Rotary Sensors demonstrating their principle of operation and application potential as well as development, production, and testing.

Addressing the need for fit for purpose position sensor technology, Novotechnik has released precision magnetic rotary position sensors in long-lifetime, non-contacting and touchless designs. 

Meeting industry needs for compact installation, safety, cost-efficiency, and reliability even in toughest environmental conditions, Novotechnik’s exclusive U.K. distribution partner, with comprehensive sales and technical support from Variohm EuroSensor, has developed sensors that feature shaft-driven designs with housed, non-contacting magnet and sensor electronics – or completely touchless design with separate position marker magnets and fully encapsulated sensor electronics. 

Designed for mobile machinery positioning mechanics for lift and link arms, cams, cranks and steering etc., typical specifications throughout the range include rotation angle up to 360 degrees with 14-bit resolution and IP67 to IP69K protection ratings and operational temperatures from -40 to +125° C. 

Flexibility to match all control systems includes a choice of voltage, current and ratiometric outputs as well as CANopen or CAN SAE J1939 bus interfaces with Micro Quadlock and other industry-standard connectors for installation convenience. 

In addition, their durability is assured with vibration ratings to 20 g (IEC 600658-2-6) as well as shock to 50 g (IEC 68068-2-27).
