On 19th June 2019, Jens Begemann will be speaking at Wedel University of Applied Sciences (called Wedel UAS in the following) about the topic of "Sensor development at TWK in Wedel – from the idea to the finished product. A short journey through the development process of a sensor system."
In the autumn of 2018, TWK inaugurated a new storage facility at its development and production location in Wedel. At the same time, the Düsseldorf-based sensor specialist significantly upgraded its logistics operations. The result is increased production, lower costs and faster delivery.
Monitoring of rotational speeds with the new SIL2/PLd-certified speed sensor
TWK has extended its magnetic rotary encoders with the FOI model series. Our FOI series incremental rotary encoder is focussed on fast availability.
A new generation of safety vibration sensors is available. Above all, the NVA115 and NVA120 models are available for wind turbines in order to protect them from damage caused by vibrations.
TWK's brand relaunch marks the start of a process of many years of maturity for continued future-oriented and strong corporate management.
Clear market positioning, sharp delineation from competition, new corporate mission statement: sensor manu-facturer TWK is reinventing itself.
TWK makes a contribution by means of sensor fusion with a gyroscope and offers inclination sensors with gyroscope correction. This is the clever combination of measurement signals to form a corrected output signal that precisely displays the measurement angle - even under adverse operating conditions.
TWK is extending its safety sensor system range: a further sensor with the PROFIsafe over PROFINET interface is now available: vibration sensor NVT90/S3.
Following the publication of the new version 4.2 of the PROFIdrive/encoder profile, TWK has revised its PROFINET rotary encoder.
TWK has had its new TBN58 rotary encoder generation with E1 approval certified by the German Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA). The single-turn rotary encoder is characterised by the following features: 14 bits in the single-turn range, completely autonomous design, i.e. 2 sensors supply position data and speed values according to CANopen class 2, CIA DSP406 version 4.0.1. Sensors 1 and 2 are each connected to the CAN bus with a 5-pin M12 connector.
The proven electronic switching cam encoders NOC are now also available with SSI (NOCE) and incremental (NOCI) interfaces.
