The low-power version of the Vert-X 21 series angle sensor from Swiss manufacturer Contelec — available in the UK from Variohm Eurosensor — is designed for power-critical applications such as battery-powered joysticks, radio controls and portable processing equipment.

The non-contacting magnetic sensor offers a reduced current consumption of less than 300µA and a voltage rating of between 1.8VDC and 5.5VDC for a standard measurement range of 0–360 with 0.3 per cent linearity.

The Vert-X 21 can be ordered with optional user-defined features — including characteristic curve, index points, direction of rotation and programmable measurement angle — that are said to extend its application potential.

The sensor is suitable for hostile environment applications where high accuracy, long life and minimal maintenance are essential requirements.
