This encoder is made for harsh environments, with a temperature of operation of -60 to 150C, immunity to lightning, high-voltage static and plasma fields, and resistance to radiation. It outdistances copper encoder links by up to 1,000m, and is safe and ATEX compliant. With the MR310 Remote Encoder Interface Module, it has quadrature outputs, a quadrature multiplier/divider, 24-bit absolute multiturn encoder emulation mode, a RS232/RS422 serial interface, and two programmable analog outputs (4-20 mA and +/-10V). The engineering evaluation kit, including the MR314 and MR310 costs $3,495, and it costs as low as $2,500 in larger quantities.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
