NewTek Sensor Solutions introduced the RV series of RVDT Rotary Position Sensors that offer angular displacement measurement of rotating elements such as quarter-turn ball and butterfly valves, actuators, throttles and dancer arm tensioners used in industrial machine-to-machine applications. With a shaft that rotates a full 360° with no stops and virtually no friction, these AC-operated rotary position sensors measure shaft angle position over a nominal range of ±30°.
These AC-operated analog RVDTs are shock and vibration tolerant to provide feedback even when operating in conditions often found in packaging and automation applications. Units operate over a temperature range of -65°F to 220°F and exhibit a linearity error of less than 0.5% of full range.
NewTek offers the RV series in both a size 8 (0.75”) and size 11 (1.06”) diameter with standard servo mounts for immediate shipment. Operating from 7.5 V rms (nominal), the AC-operated RVDTs provide an analog signal output that can be used with NewTek’s NTC-6000 Signal Conditioner for a complete measurement solution. The RV sensor can operate in the harsh conditions while the signal conditioner is stationed in a nonvolatile area.
