TT ElectronicsBI Technologies' EN08 Series is a line
of single-and dual-digital rotary encoders. The RoHS-compliant rotary encoders
have an 8 mm design with options of a SPST momentary switch and dual encoders
with concentric shafts. The encoders have 20 detents per revolution with
rotational torque of detent rated at a maximum of 1.0oz-in. The operating life
is 50,000 cycles, and the optional SPST momentary switch life is rated at
15,000 actuations. The encoders feature a maximum operating speed of 30RPMs at
10 pulses per revolution. The closed circuit resistance is rated at a maximum
of 3.0 Ohms with a 1.0mA/5V dc contact rating. The SPST switch has a maximum
operating force of 850 gf and travels up to 0.5mm. Operating temperatures range
from -30 to +70C. The encoders have a mechanical-type contact and are sealed to
IP50 specifications. The EN08 Series are suitable for applications including
digital audio/video equipment, navigation systems, appliances and machine
The EN08 Series has three model styles:
side adjust, single encoder, SPST momentary switch.
EN08-S: side adjust, single encoder without momentary
EN08-C: side adjust, dual encoders with concentric
Lantronix Inc. has expanded its line of controllers for sensor networks with the release of a rugged controller that improves management of automation systems used in a number of industries, including manufacturing, oil and gas, and chemicals.
Inspired by the hooks a parasitic worm uses to penetrate its host's intestines, the Karp Lab has invented a flexible adhesive patch covered with microneedles that adheres well to wet, soft tissues, but doesn't cause damage when removed.
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
