Novotechnik U.S. has introduced the RSB 3600 Series of absolute single-turn angle sensors. The sensors are non-contact sensors with galvanized steel housing and stainless steel shaft with up to 100 N working shaft load for HD version. They are sealed up to IP 69K—depending on version.
RSB 3600 Series sensors are EGMR (enhanced giant magnetic resistance) devices that retain their angular position even when power is removed. The sensors retain that angle information for years without power. So there is no need for batteries. Operating speed is up to 12,000 RPM.
Key specifications for RSB 3600 Series include 36.5 mm profile, count to 16 turns, angular position 0 to 360°, 12-bit resolution, repeatability of <0.1°, and typical independent linearity of ≤ ±0.8% F.S. Single, partially redundant and fully redundant two channel versions are offered. Output options are: 0.25 to 4.75 V, 0.5 to 4.5 V, 0.1 to 10 V, 4 to 20 mA, and 10 to 90% of power supply.
The RSB 3600 Series is available in connector or cable versions as well as 5 and 24 V supply models. RSB 3600 Series versions have a MTTF of more than 105 years. All models have operating temperature range of -30 to +85°C and 0 to 98% RH, non-condensing. RSB 3600 Series sensors withstand shock to 50 g and vibration to 20 g.
