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
Californiaís plan to mandate an electric vehicle market isnít the first such undertaking and certainly wonít be the last. But as the Golden State ratchets up for its next big step toward zero-emission vehicle status in 2018, it might be wise to consider a bit of history.
A customer who was thermal printing strip steel had a problem: When the strip's speed increased, the thermo printer would catch fire. When he set a flame to a piece of the strip, he couldn't get it to burn. What was the problem?
