This sensor series integrates a precise encoder with a compact housing that allows multiple mounting configurations. It has a 1,000 mm measurement range and can offer a resolution of 6 pulses per mm with either 5 or 24V output types. It has an absolute analog output with either 1 kOhm potentiometer, 10V or 4-20 mA output, in addition to its digital version. It is geared toward linear positioning of patient tables in CT, MRI and X-Ray diagnostic equipment.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
