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
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
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
