The new TFD Series of touchless linear position sensors from Novotechnik, U.S. provide wear-free operation in tight spaces, with maximum sensor dimensions of 40 x 27 x 7 mm thin. Sensing direction can be either parallel or perpendicular to mounting holes.
The TFD-4000 Series uses a magnetic position marker to provide a touchless measurement range of 0 to 14, 24 or 50 mm—depending on model. These sensors make measurements through the air and non-magnetic materials where a magnetic position marker mounts to the application. Key TFD-4000 Series specifications include ingress protection from liquids and dust to IP 67, resolution of 12 bits, repeatability of ≤ 0.1 % of full scale and optional second channel for applications requiring redundancy.
TFD-4000 Series sensors have analog voltage output and feature an operating temperature range of –40 to +125°C.
Some typical applications for the sensors include textile machinery, packaging machinery, sheet metal machinery, medical applications, marine, mobile engine management systems, industrial trucks, construction machinery, agricultural and forestry machinery.
