Honeywell's Hawk Resolvers 1-Inch Series include positioning for electro-optical systems,gimbals/communication pedestals, infrared systems, vehicle transmission systemsand test equipment. Potential space applications include positioning forsatellite, satellite antenna, space station, and space vehicle solar panelarrays.
It has a shock specification of 50 g, 11 ms, vibration specification of15 g, 10 to 2000 Hz and wide operating temperature range of -50.8 to 93.3C [-60to 200F] which allow for use in harsh military and aerospace applications. Inaddition to its non-contact design, the lack of electronics, and the use ofspace-qualified materials, the Hawk Resolvers meet multiple military/aerospacespecifications: DO-160D, MIL-STD-202G, MIL-STD-810G, MIL-STD-81963B,MIL-STD-461F, and comply with space outgassing requirement SP-R0022.
The wide excitation voltage range of 2 to 15V allows customers tostandardize on a resolver that meets their excitation voltage needs,simplifying sourcing and delivery.
The fully housed configuration with bearing/shaft has a small outerdiameter of 1 inch, which allows for use in size-restricted applications. Thesingle speed operation (1 magnetic pole pair) allows for cost-effective angleresolution over a 360 degree + range, and the wide excitation frequency rangeof 2000 to 5000. The transformation ratio of 0.45 or 1.0 offers two choices,increasing flexibility within the application.
The Honeywell Hawk 1-Inch Series Resolvers are also available withoptions, including:
Custom trim designed toallow tighter accuracy
Connections whichinclude custom lead wire, cable, connector on unit or connector on cable
Titanium housingprovides enhanced durability and resistance to corrosion; lightweight
Custom redundantversion (two independent resolvers within the same housing) which providesback-up/fail-safe in critical applications
For decades, engineers have worked to combat erosion by developing high-strength alloys, composites, and surface coatings. However, in a new paper, a team at Jilin University in China turned to one of the most deadly animals in the world for inspiration -- the yellow fat-backed scorpion.
Green energy is being billed as a way to make communities that are energy deprived more self-sustaining. So it makes sense to use natural materials to create devices that harvest this type of energy. That’s the idea behind a hybrid wind/solar energy harvester made of bamboo that’s been developed by UVM researchers.
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.
