E9 miniature rotary encoder measures 0.866 inch in diameter and 0.81 inch in length, and is available with resolution of up to 512 lines per revolution. A proprietary CMOS ASIC performs all electronic functions in the encoder, including signal detection, conditioning, and output. The detection circuitry uses an integrated sensor matrix and mask, which provides quadrature and index signal phasing. E9's rugged modified-polymer code disc exhibits dimensional stability over an operating temperature range of -40 to 100C.

A bold, gold, open-air coupe may not be the ticket to automotive nirvana for every consumer, but Lexus’ LF-C2 concept car certainly turned heads at the recent Los Angeles Auto Show. What’s more, it may provide a glimpse of the luxury automaker’s future.
The complexity of diesel engines means optimizing their performance requires a large amount of experimentation. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a very useful and intuitive tool in this, and cold flow analysis using CFD is an ideal approach to study the flow characteristics without going into the details of chemical reactions occurring during the combustion.
