The engineers at Industrial Indexing Systems have added a selection of encoder-based motors to their company's line of DeltaPro single-axis positioning systems. These are being offered in addition to the resolver-based motors already available. Available in nine ranges from 400W to 11 kW, the new A Series motors are rated for 1500 rpm and use a 2048 line precision encoder. A Series motors have a higher rotor inertia than standard Delta motors, and combined with the encoder, make them ideal for direct drive servo applications. All DeltaPro single-axis systems are compact, high performance positioning systems that integrate everything required for a complete motion control solution, including a closed-loop positioner, drive, and power supply; motor; operator interface; and cables.

One way to keep a Formula One racing team moving at breakneck speed in the pit and at the test facility is to bring CAD drawings of the racing vehicleís parts down to the test facility and even out to the track.
Most of us would just as soon step on a cockroach rather than study it, but thatís just what researchers at UC Berkeley did in the pursuit of building small, nimble robots suitable for disaster-recovery and search-and-rescue missions.
Design engineers need to prepare for a future in which their electronic products will use not just one or two, but possibly many user interfaces that involve touch, vision, gestures, and even eye movements.
