The Heidenhain Acanto Absolute
Length Gage with EnDat 2.2 has the qualities of an optical encoder and solves
many of the problems of different length gages.
The Acanto ¹s measuring principle is the measurement
standard and does not drift over time nor does it require mastering. Sweet
spots are nonexistent with the Acanto as 2 µm of accuracy are held throughout
the entire measuring length. The new absolute technology, using
EnDat 2.2, enables the Acanto to know its position upon power up with no need
to reference. The Acanto comes in both spring operated and pneumatically
operated models and is offered in 12 and 30 mm measuring lengths.
The Heidenhain ND 2100G Gage-Chek
will handle gaging and inspection tasks from pass/fail detection to complex
logic statements communicating to a PLC. They can be configured for basic
or advanced operations where inputs can be assigned and combined as desired,
along with mathematical, trigonometric or statistical formulas. This makes
it possible to measure even complex dimensions such as thickness, flatness,
volume and more. Rapid acquisition of measurement data can monitor dynamic
events such as the eccentricity of a rotating shaft.
The Heidenhain ND 2100G Gage-Chek
now has a new color LED lit display which will display results numerically or
graphically as a bar graph or dial indicator. The ND 2100G Gage-Chek can
manage up to 100 parts, each with up to 16 visible measurement features and 16
hidden ones and can save thousands of data entry points for internal
statistical process control (SPC) or export. User customization can be
done with programmable soft and hot keys. Min/Max functions monitor and
store data, and warning and tolerance limits can be set to each display value.
A new plug and play routine allows
for interfacing of the Acanto and ND 2100G Gage-Chek. The ND 2100G Gage-Chek
can interface with 1 to 8 ACANTO Gages and is a solution for many gaging
applications. The ND 2100G Gage-Chek will also accept any EnDat 2.2 encoders
from Heidenhain including linear, rotary and angle.
What makes this movie stand out from the typical high school sports story is that the teenagers are undocumented immigrants, and the big game is a NASA-sponsored marine robotics competition. Like many other Hollywood movies, however, Spare Parts only tells part of the story. What the film shows -- and doesn’t show -- raises important issues affecting STEM education in the US.
Instead of sifting through huge amounts of technical data looking for answers to assembly problems, engineers can now benefit from 3M's new initiative -- 3M Assembly Solutions. The company has organized its wealth of adhesive and tape solutions into six typical application areas, making it easier to find the best products to solve their real-world assembly and bonding problems.
Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
