non-contact linear encoders are increasingly being used in measurement applications
that require higher traversing speeds and operating cycles, as well as lower
mechanical backlash and zero frictional force induced by an encoder. The RSF MS 25 linear encoder offers
permanent control of the scanning signals over the whole measuring length. The
use of the tricolored LED allows for
easy mounting since no test box or oscilloscope is needed and is helpful for quick
troubleshooting during operation.
RSF MS 25 utlizes a
single-field scanning principle which allows for high traversing speeds (up to
10 m/s), large mounting tolerances and insensitivity to contamination on the scale.
Integrated into the head of the MS 25 encoder is a wide range of interpolation
electronics enabling resolutions from 10
Âµm to 100 nm. Two end-of-travel optical switch signals are also
available directly out of the reader head. The end travel signal locations can
be set by the user.
are six mounting configurations for the graduation, as well as from various
substrate options for the tape and carrier.
Advertised as the "Most Powerful Tablet Under $100," the Kindle Fire HD 6 was too tempting for the team at iFixit to pass up. Join us to find out if inexpensive means cheap, irreparable, or just down right economical. It's teardown time!
The first photos made with a 3D-printed telescope are here and they're not as fuzzy as you might expect. A team from the University of Sheffield beat NASA to the goal. The photos of the Moon were made with a reflecting telescope that cost the research team £100 to make (about $161 US).
The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices -- smartphones, tablets, and notebooks -- results in more complex devices under test, the demand for radio frequency test equipment is starting to intensify.
Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
