The RFC4800 Series

Touchless Angle Sensors Include IO Link

June 23, 2022
The RFC4800 Series from Novotechnik are available in single and multi-channel versions.

The RFC4800 Series of touchless angle sensors can measure angular position up to 360 deg., revolution counter and speed without wear. The RFC 4800 is now available with IO-Link output interface. Its serial communication protocol needs only three wires to simultaneously transmit measured values and status information. The status bit can signal a controller if a sensor needs to be replaced and the controller can detect the new device and automatically configure it based on stored values minimizing downtime.

Parameters such as zero point can be sent and programmed into the sensor over this bus. Other features include programmable zero point offset, measurement averaging and sign of rotational direction. RFC4800 Series has a resolution of 14 bits across 360 deg., repeatability of ≤ ±0.36 deg. and independent linearity of ±0.5% of full scale.

Single and multi-channel versions of the RFC4800 Series are available. Sensors are sealed up to IP69 and operating temperature range is −40 to +105°C. Mean time to failure is 810 years. Cable and connector versions are available.
