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
ABI Research, a firm based in the UK that specializes in analyzing global connectivity and other emerging technologies, estimates there will be 40.9 billion active wirelessly interconnected “things” by 2020. The driving force is the usual suspect: the Internet of Things.
Just in time for Earth Day, chemicals leader Bayer MaterialScience reported from the UTECH Europe 2015 polyurethane show on programs and applications using its materials to help reduce energy usage. The company also gave an update on its CO2-based PU as that eco-friendly material comes closer to production.
Solar and wind energy are becoming more viable as a source of energy on the electric grid. For decades, the major drawback to solar and wind was that they’re temperamental. A cloudy day kills solar and a still day renders the wind turbines useless. Automation tools, however, are providing a path to help these renewables become practical.
In honor of Earth Day, the National Security Agency has launched the STEM Recycling Challenge in Maryland schools to encourage kids to think about where the garbage they throw out every day actually goes. The agency has also introduced “Dunk,” a muscular blue cartoon recycling bin wearing shorts and sneakers.
