The HS35 hollow shaft encoder features expanded capability for finer resolutions. High resolution is reportedly obtained using robust internal interpolation electronics that multiply internal signals with no degradation of overall accuracy. Interpolative multiples of 2× to 16× are available. The product features a rugged cast metal housing and dual preloaded bearings, along with rotating shaft seals and a sealed connector for NEMA 4, 13, and IP65 ratings.
Are they robots or androids? We're not exactly sure. Each talking, gesturing Geminoid looks exactly like a real individual, starting with their creator, professor Hiroshi Ishiguro of Osaka University in Japan.
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 discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
