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.
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.
