Novotechnik - New High Accuracy Linear Position Sensors

Novotechnik U.S. introduces the TE1 Series of absolute linear position sensors, with integrated microprocessor and associated circuitry to provide signal conditioning for a current or voltage output signal.

Southborough, MA - Novotechnik U.S. introduces the TE1 Series of absolute linear position sensors, with integrated microprocessor and associated circuitry to provide signal conditioning for a current or voltage output signal.


The signal conditioned output enables the TE1 Series to have long cable runs without substantial signal loss and makes output connections a cinch with only signal and ground connections to make.

The TE1 Series includes versions with and without return spring. Ball coupling is included for backlash- and shear force free operation. Housing profile of the TE1 Series is a compact 0.70 in (18 mm). Cable and connector versions are standard.

Key specifications for the TE1 Series include 25 to 150 mm measurement range for both rod and rod with return spring versions. Resolution is unlimited and repeatability is 0.002 mm. Linearity is to ± 0.075% of full scale. Four output options are available: 0 to 10 V, 10 to 0 V, 4 to 20 mA and 20 to 4 mA. Sensor life is >100 million movements.

Bitflow is the leader in CoaXPress

With the introduction of its Cyton and Karbon CXP frame grabbers, BitFlow has established itself as the leader in CoaXPress (CXP), a simple, yet powerful, standard for moving high speed serial data from a camera to a frame grabber. With CXP, video is captured at speeds of up to 6.25 Gigabits/Second (Gb/S). Simultaneously, control commands and triggers can be sent to the camera 20 Mb/S (with a trigger accuracy of +/- 2 nanoseconds). Up to 13 W of power can also supplied to the camera. All this happens over a single piece of industry standard 75 Ohm coaxial cable. Multiple CXP links can be aggregated to support higher data rates (e.g. four links provide 25 Gb/S of data). BitFlow CXP frame grabbers open the door to applications where cable cost, routing requirements and long distances have prevented the move to high resolution, high speed digital cameras. In many cases, existing coaxial infrastructure can be repurposed for CXP with very low installation costs.
