Celesco Transducer Products'
CS15 Incremental Optical Encoder is a compact "size-15" servo-mount
encoder and is 1.5 inches in diameter, less than one inch in height and offers
four different resolution options from 100 to 2500 pulses per turn. It is a
solution for OEM and single-piece user alike. The CS15 provides rotary position
and velocity information to operate motion control and robotic systems. Each
encoder ships with opto-asic circuitry designed to provide a clean, reliable
quadrature output signal to most PLC or electrical interface. Precision ball
bearings support a durable stainless steel shaft to help ensure this durability
and long life. Environmental suitability is IP50 and it can be operated at
temperatures from 0 to 185F.
Other standard features of the CS15 include:
mm dia. shaft
resolution options: 100, 1000, 2000 and 2500 pulses per turn
OEMs and single piece users
output channels for single-ended or differential output connection
Are they robots or androids? We're not exactly sure. Each talking, gesturing Geminoid looks exactly like a real individual, starting with their creator, professor Hiroshi Ishiguro of Osaka University in Japan.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
