Swiss sensor manufacturer Contelec has launched Vert-X 90E, a flat, heavy-duty non-contacting rotary sensor suitable for mobile applications.
The Vert-X 90E has been unveiled by the Switzerland-based sensor developer Contelec. The device is a flat, heavy wireless rotary sensor that is ideal for use in mobile applications. The device has a height of 12mm and is protected from ingress compliant with IP69K. It tolerates high levels of shock and vibration making it ideally suited for use in space constrained applications such as building and forestry equipment, concrete pumps and fire engines.
The rotating axis of the device is not mechanically lined to the measurement solution. A magnet has been permanently fixed to the rotating device that is un-connected. This allows for accurate measurement readings of several millimeters of both the radial and axial offsets. The forces that perform both radially and axially ensure that the device lasts a long time. This makes it an ideal option for instance when the device cannot be connected to the target or when it exceeds a preset tolerance range.
The device has been developed using the Vert-X MH-C2 technology, user friendly indexing point setting and rotation direction. Various analogue and digital interfaces can also be incorporated into the device.
