Novotechnik U.S. has introduced the TFD series of touchless linear position sensors that provide wear-free operation in tight spaces. Maximum sensor dimensions are 40 x 27 x 7 mm.
The TFD-4000 series uses a magnetic position marker to provide a stroke length of 0 to 14, 24 or 50 mm—depending on the model. These sensors make touchless measurements through air and non-magnetic materials. Magnetic position marker mounts to users application.
Other key TFD-4000 series specifications include ingress protection from liquids and dust to IP69, resolution of 12 bits, repeatability of ≤0.1% of full scale, and optional second channel for applications requiring redundancy.
These sensors have analog voltage output and an operating temperature range of –40° to 125°C.
Applications include textile machinery, packaging machinery, sheet metal machinery, medical applications, marine, mobile engine management systems, industrial trucks, construction machinery, agricultural and forestry machinery.
