N2 - For a finite dimensional representation $V$ of a finite reflection group $W$, we consider the rational Cherednik algebra $\mathsf{H}_{t,c}(V,W)$ associated with $(V,W)$ at the parameters $t\neq 0$ and $c$. The Dunkl total angular momentum algebra $O_{t,c}(V,W)$ arises as the centraliser algebra of the Lie superalgebra $\mathfrak{osp}(1|2)$ containing a Dunkl deformation of the Dirac operator, inside the tensor product of $\mathsf{H}_{t,c}(V,W)$ and the Clifford algebra generated by $V$. We show that, for every value of the parameter $c$, the centre of $O_{t,c}(V,W)$ is isomorphic to a univariate polynomial ring. Notably, the generator of the centre changes depending on whether or not $(-1)_V$ is an element of the group $W$. Using this description of the centre, and using the projection of the pseudo scalar from the Clifford algebra into $O_{t,c}(V,W)$, we establish results analogous to ``Vogan's conjecture'' for a family of operators depending on suitable elements of the double cover $\tilde{W}$.
