Non-contact rotary sensors measure just 13 x 20 mm. Novotechnik's non-contacting technology eliminates the need for a resistance track and wiper to provide longer life. This technology Utilizes a vertical Hall sensor with a unique cross-structure affixed to a silicon chip. Vert-X 1300 Series of sensors measure changes in the magnetic field as the shaft is turned to provide a 360° measurement range with 12-bit resolution. Designed for robotics, medical devices and scientific instrumentation where small size has to be combined with high precision, Vert-X 1300 Series sensors are available with a wide range of options including: analog, incremental, SPI, SSI, and PWM outputs; custom shaft designs; and customer specific cabling.
