Model 657 Super Cube position sensor is for severe environments. The 5/8-inch(3) sensor is available with standard resistance values ranging from 50(omega) to 25 k(omega) and up to 1-million shaft revolutions. Depending on the application, sensors can be provided with or without mechanical stops and with electrical travel to 320 degrees. Options include special shafts and bushings, custom wire harnesses in lieu of wire terminals, special ink systems, and high-temperature versions. Model 657 features a multi-array, conductive-plastic screen process, and laser trimming to confirm a 2% output signal.
Truchard will be presented the award at the 2014 Golden Mousetrap Awards ceremony during the co-located events Pacific Design & Manufacturing, MD&M West, WestPack, PLASTEC West, Electronics West, ATX West, and AeroCon.
In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
