Celesco's new string encoder uses industrial rotary encoders with Celesco's durable linear cable reels. The spool translates linear cable motion into the encoder's rotary motion, with eight inches of linear measurement per encoder shaft turn. The encoder offers a measurement range of 10 to 250 inches, and four different measurement cable directions. It supports common 2.0 and 2.5-inch square flange mount encoder mounts, and works with the 60 mm face mount encoders, with other mountings available. It can use any incremental or absolute encoder, and provides quadrature, 5V line driver, universal line driver, SSI, Devicenet and other common digital outputs. Made to be durable, the encoders are designed for die cast, valve positioning, material testing, stage positioning and other applications.
Using wireless chips and accessories, engineers can now extract data from the unlikeliest of places -- pumps, motors, bridges, conveyors, refineries, cooling towers, parking garages, down-hole drills and just about anything else that can benefit from monitoring.
With strong marketplace demand for qualified engineers across the board that currently outstrips the available supply, there may never be a better time for engineers and project managers to advance their careers and salaries. Whether those moves are successful in the short-term and long-term is likely to depend on how the transition from one job to the next is handled.
