Series M transducers from Space Age Control are designed as low cost positioning solutions for OEMs that also need quick turnaround. The company will ship its transducer in bulk or single quantities the same day they're ordered, according to Tom Anderson, who manages the company's application development. With a maximum range of 85 inches, the design uses a reduced fleet angle for better repeatability and less chance of cable overwrap. Through a combination of fixed and slotted holes on a mounting flange, the transducer can be oriented at any angle from 0 through 360 degrees. Detection options range from a voltage dividing sensor and potentiometer to encoders with outputs of 1200, 5000, or 8192 pulses per revolution.

As energy efficiency becomes more and more a concern for makers of electronics devices, researchers are coming up with new ways to harvest energy from sound vibration, footsteps, and even electromagnetic fields in the air.
The government wants to study your brain, and DARPA wants to use similar information to give robots true autonomy beyond any artificial intelligence developed to date. Sound like science fiction? It's not.
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
