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.
Lantronix Inc. has expanded its line of controllers for sensor networks with the release of a rugged controller that improves management of automation systems used in a number of industries, including manufacturing, oil and gas, and chemicals.
Inspired by the hooks a parasitic worm uses to penetrate its host's intestines, the Karp Lab has invented a flexible adhesive patch covered with microneedles that adheres well to wet, soft tissues, but doesn't cause damage when removed.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
