Dynapar's next-generation NorthStar HSD35
is the mill-duty version of the company's vector-duty HS35R hollow shaft
encoder. It uses the same core technology as the HS35R to provide maximum
uptime with features such as a 400g shock rating, optional 100C temperature limit
and enhanced sealing. Additional mill-duty features include solder-less
connectors for easy field service, stainless-steel shaft hub and dual-split
clamp to resist common mill chemicals, and optional dual isolated outputs for
redundancy. Like the HS35R, the new encoder is also RoHS and CE compliant.
In an age of globalization and rapid changes through scientific progress, two of our societies' (and economies') main concerns are to satisfy the needs and wishes of the individual and to save precious resources. Cloud computing caters to both of these.
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.
