Dynapar announces the next-generation
NorthStar HSD35, the mill-duty version of the vector-duty HS35R hollow shaft
encoder. The new HSD35 utilizes 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 its sibling HS35R, the
new encoder is also RoHS- and CE-compliant.
A Tokyo company, Miraisens Inc., has unveiled a device that allows users to move virtual 3D objects around and "feel" them via a vibration sensor. The device has many applications within the gaming, medical, and 3D-printing industries.
In the last few years, use of CFD in building design has increased manifolds. Computational
fluid dynamics is effective in analyzing the flow and thermal properties of air within spaces. It can be used in buildings to find the best measures for comfortable temperature at low energy use.
