EVM58 Ethernet IP Encoders are available in single or multi-turn
configurations. These rotary
encoders provide accurate absolute machine position or velocity
feedback to the system controller via an industry-standard Ethernet/IP
IP Encoders are also compatible with a variety of PLC controllers,
including industry-standard PLC products from Rockwell Automation, Allen
Bradley and Schneider, making them useful for material
and general factory
Ethernet IP Encoders come in standard 58 mm
diameter housings, with a solid
10 mm shaft and clamping flange design. Diagnostic LEDs provide visual status
indication to help users quickly correct problems and keep machines up and
running. M12 d-coded connectors simplify operation and are used to power, and
facilitate communication to and from, the encoder. Ethernet IP Encoders can be used with cable pull devices to determine linear
position feedback and transmit that feedback back to the controller.
The DDV-IP is a two-wheeled self-balancing robot that can deliver cold beverages to thirsty folks on hot summer days. A wireless RF remote enables manual control of the device beyond the act of self-balancing. All of the features of the DDV-IP result in an effective delivery vehicle while providing entertainment to the user.
Eric Doster of iFixit talks about the most surprising aspect of the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 teardown. In a presentation at Medical Design & Manufacturing Midwest, iFixit gave the Surface Pro 3 a score of one (out of a possible 10) for repairability.
Barnacles and mussels stay attached to ship hulls and rocks because of a very sticky protein glue they secrete, holding on for a long time even underwater. Researchers at MIT took mussel glue as inspiration -- and as an ingredient -- for engineering their own sticky waterproof adhesive.
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.
