The DGS 65 incremental encoder provides resolution of up to 10,000 pulses per revolution. The 60 mm diameter unit has a 15 mm hub shaft with collets for shaft diameters of 6, 8, 10 and 12 mm. Available with a MS23 12-pin connector or shielded cable, the blind hollow shaft encoders have a differential line driver or push-pull interface. With supply voltages that range from 5 to 30V, the units have TTL or HTL compatible outputs. The IP65/66-rated housing provides protection for rugged applications. The easily adapted DGS 65 has a compression shaft with servo mount and targets machine tool, textile, woodworking and packaging applications.
What should be the perception of a product’s real-world performance with regard to the published spec sheet? While it is easy to assume that the product will operate according to spec, what variables should be considered, and is that a designer obligation or a customer responsibility? Or both?
Biomimicry has already found its way into the development of robots and new materials, with researchers studying animals and nature to come up with new innovations. Now thanks to researchers in Boston, biomimicry could even inform the future of electrical networks for next-generation displays.
