Rotary position sensors

The Vert-X 22E Series of programmable, touchless rotary position sensors use a magnetic pickup that is secured to the rotating object so there is no direct mechanical link between the shaft and measuring system and, therefore, no wear.

The unit can be programmed for the slope of the linear output, zero and end points, midpoint, and switch steps. The sensors eliminate the need for other components to specify the angles users want to measure, choose an intermediate plateau, sense of rotation (CW or CCW), V-output function, or switch function.

A programming tool, Vert-X Easy Adapt, lets users program the tool with a PC to choose between six modifiable linear output curve characteristics.

Specifications include 0 to 360° measurement range, 5 and 24-V supply versions, up to two switch outputs, resolution to 14-bit, ≤0.1° repeatability, and ≤0.1° hysteresis. MTBF is 2.7 or 5.8 million hr, depending on version. Output options include voltage of 10 to 90% of power supply, SPI, and PWM.
