This encoder has a passive design and runs at temperatures from -60 to 150C, runs farther than copper encoder links by up to 1,000m, is immune to lightning and high-voltage static or plasma fields, and resists radiation. Coupled with the MR310 Remote Encoder Interface Module, the encoder has quadrature outputs, quadrature multiplier/divider, 24-bit absolute multitum encoder emulation mode, two programmable analog outputs (4/20 mA and +/-10V), and RS232/RS422 serial interface. Engineering evaluation kits including the MR3154 and MR310 cost $3,495, and in larger quantities are priced as low as $2,500. Micronor Inc.http://rbi.ims.ca/4928-633
The Industrial Internet of Things may be going off the deep end in connecting everything on the plant floor. Some machines, bearings, or conveyors simply donít need to be monitored -- even if they can be.
Wind turbines already are imposing structures that stretch high into the sky, but an engineering graduate student at the University of Notre Dame wants to make them even taller to reduce energy costs and improve efficiency.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies.
You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived.
