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.
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.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
