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
Researchers have been working on a number of alternative chemistries to lithium-ion for next-gen batteries, silicon-air among them. However, while the technology has been viewed as promising and cost-effective, to date researchers haven’t managed to develop a battery of this chemistry with a viable running time -- until now.
Norway-based additive manufacturing company Norsk Titanium is building what it says is the first industrial-scale 3D printing plant in the world for making aerospace-grade metal components. The New York state plant will produce 400 metric tons each year of aerospace-grade, structural titanium parts.
