Celesco's NEW SE1 linear cable-extension transducer is suited for linear measurements in OEM and testing applications where an encoder-based signal is preferred. Available in either 25- or 50-inch ranges, the SE1 comes standard with a 12-inch electrical cable with Molex-style connector. The SE1 type string-encoder is ideal for applications such as OEM machinery, medical equipment, product testing, aerospace, automotive, and material testing. The compact package design features a handy mounting bracket, enabling the user to easily select the direction of the measuring cable exit. The device has been designed for cable misalignment, ensuring long cable life even if installation is not perfect. The "free-release" tolerant cable design allows the cable to be freely released inhibiting damage to the transducer during quick retractions. This durable transducer is ideal in challenging work environments due to the Polycarbonate enclosure that is capable of withstanding chemical media and moderate physical impacts. The SE1's miniature incremental encoder is 0.75 inches in diameter and 0.5 inches thick. The encoder's two-channel quadrature TTL square-wave output signal and 56-pulse-per-inch resolution provide reliable performance. Celesco http://rbi.ims.ca/4912-541
The Beam Store from Suitable Technologies is managed by remote workers from places as diverse as New York and Sydney, Australia. Employees attend to store visitors through Beam Smart Presence Systems (SPSs) from the company. The systems combine mobility and video conferencing and allow people to communicate directly from a remote location via a screen as well as move around as if they are actually in the room.
An MIT research team has invented what they see as a solution to the need for biodegradable 3D-printable materials made from something besides petroleum-based sources: a water-based robotic additive extrusion method that makes objects from biodegradable hydrogel composites.
