Newtek RV series of Rotary Position sensors ensure the performance accuracy of industrial robotic systems used throughout automotive assembly plants.

With a shaft that rotates 360° with no stops, the RV Series of Rotary Position sensors measure shaft angle position over a nominal range of ±30°.

NewTek RVDTs operate with higher accuracy and longevity in areas with high temperatures, vibration, and shock.  A wide operating temperature range of -65°F to 221°F (-55 to 105°C) ensures long-term reliability in the hot environments of automotive production.  Shock and vibration tolerant, these AC-operated RVDTs also offer good noise performance.

Units are available in both a size 8 (0.75”) and size 11 (1.06”) diameter. As the AC-operated Rotary Position sensor requires external excitation, NewTek NTC-6000 LVDT Signal Conditioner powers the sensor while converting its position output into 4-20mA, 0-5V, 0-10V, or RS-485 format for robotic control systems.
