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
The 3D printing revolution seems to have a knack for quickly moving technology ahead by way of collaborative effort and even a little friendly competition -- all of course in the name of scientific advancement.
Advantech has launched a new series of motion-control I/O modules to meet the increased demands that come with more distributed industrial systems that require control of a growing number of axes and devices.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
