K(mu)DA position-sensing system makes highly accurate digital measurements and can be calibrated by the user. Setup involves pushing six keys on the front panel. K(mu)DA can operate as a stand-alone system offering three-point calibration and auto zero with push-button ease. The system's two channels provide single-ended or differential output and a sampling rate of more than 10,000/sec.

At the Design News webinar on June 27, learn all about aluminum extrusion: designing the right shape so it costs the least, is simplest to manufacture, and best fits the application's structural requirements.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
